Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP)

logo for Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP)

At the State level, the FFVP is administered by the State Agency (OSSE), housed under Wellness and Nutrition Services, School Programs. Selected schools in the District of Columbia receive reimbursement for fresh fruits and vegetables made available, free of cost, to students during the school day. FFVP can be an important tool in our efforts to combat childhood obesity. The Program has been successful in introducing school children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have the opportunity to sample.
