The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program

 

                                 

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program makes fruit and vegetable snacks available at no cost to all children in participating schools.  The program began in 2002 as pilot program in a small number of schools and has since become a permanent program that was expanded to cover selected schools in all 50 states as part of the 2008 farm bill.  Flatwoods Elementary is a participating school.  All students receive fresh fruit and vegetable snacks daily at no cost.
