Fresh Fruits & Vegetables Program

The Morgan County elementary schools have been awarded a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) USDA grant. The grant is administered by USDA and the Division of School and Community Nutrition, KDE and coordinated by Morgan County Schools Child Nutrition Services.

A fresh fruit or vegetable snack will be provided for all students at least three days each week.

 

The Goal of the FFVP is to:

• Create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices

• Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience

• Increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption

• Make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health

 

Snacks will be eaten in the cafeteria and their classrooms. Children will be encouraged to try the fruit or vegetable snack each day, but they may opt to not participate if they do not like or cannot eat the fruit or vegetable that day.

Please encourage your child to participate in the snack program to further emphasize the importance of good nutrition. If you have any questions about this program, please contact your school principal or Child Nutrition Cafeteria manager.
