We are here to help provide the nourishment they need to grow both in body and mind, so that they may achieve the challenging goals they set.
Oregon Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) funded annual grant program. Our district implements this grant by providing free fresh fruits and/or vegetables to students in elementary schools where grants have been awarded. The purpose of the program is to increase the variety and frequency of fruits and vegetables that children eat and to positively influence their life-long healthy eating habits. Every morning each classroom is provided with a fresh fruit or vegetable option to enjoy in the classroom. We are excited to announce that FFVP grants have been awarded to the following elementary schools: Lincoln, Heritage, Nellie Muir and Washington. The grant duration is 1 year or until grant funds run out, beginning October 1.
