Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snack Program

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snack Program (FFVP) starts October 1st! This is a federal grant program that allows us to offer a daily fruit or veggie snack at 27 MPS schools— Seward was chosen as one of them!. It’s designed to expose students to a variety of fruits and vegetables and encourage healthy eating habits.

This year, our theme is “Try-it Tuesdays!” Every Tuesday we’ll feature a unique fruit or vegetable and provide information about its geographic origin, cultural significance, and fun facts. Check out the newsletter on the back of the menu you’ll receive with your first or second snack.
