Our school received a grant from the Oregon Department of Education to offer fresh fruits and vegetables in the classroom during the instruction day. This is a federal program called Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP). The FFVP not only provides healthy fruits and vegetables to the schools, but encourages healthy eating habits as well. The FFVP strives to introduce fruits and vegetables children may not have had the opportunity to try before. The focus is to promote a healthy life-style and impact students present and future health. Fresh fruits and vegetables are provided throughout the school week. The goal is not only to provide tasty snacks for the children, but also to introduce nutrition education allowing them to understand the importance of consuming fruits and vegetables.
