Deerfield Park Students Participate in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program providing free fresh fruit and vegetable snacks to students in participating elementary schools during the school day. The goal of the FFVP is to improve children’s overall diet and create healthier eating habits to impact their present and future health. The FFVP will help schools create healthier school environments by:
Providing healthier food choices
Expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience
Increasing children’s fruit and vegetable consumption
Students receive fresh fruit and vegetable snacks each Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
