2011-12 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant
On March 23, 2011, the Office of Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) submitted an application for the 2011-12 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) grant to the Florida Department of Education for the following schools: Cambridge Elementary and Endeavour Elementary. As a reminder the original application came before the Board on March 22, 2011. We are pleased to report that both schools have been selected to participate in this program which will operate from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. Funding is estimated at $66,350 and does not require a grant match. FNS attended a training workshop on April 27, 2011 in Orlando which covered all the requirements for operating this program. FNS will partner with Cambridge and Endeavour Elementary schools to insure all criteria for successfully operating the FFVP is met throughout the school year.
Accept the grant for Cambridge and Endeavour Elementary schools to participate in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) for the 2011-12 school year.
