Description

The South Carolina Department of Education is accepting applications for the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP).

The purpose of the FFVP is for elementary schools to provide free fresh fruits and vegetables to students throughout the school day. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options. The FFVP also encourages schools to develop partnerships at the State and local level for support in implementing and operating the program. 

The goals of the FFVP are to create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices to:
  • expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience,
  • increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption, and
  • make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health.

Elementary schools, including residential child care centers, private, parochial, and charter schools are eligible to apply. See Application Submission Instructions for additional information on eligibility.

The Office of Health and Nutrition will offer a pre-award technical assistance session via Adobe Connect on March 22, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. No password is required to join the session. Participants should enter their full names when logging in to the session. Participants will be able to log in 30 minutes prior to the start of the session to test their equipment’s audio settings and to download/print handouts. While participation is not mandatory in order to submit an application, it is highly recommended.
