2013-14 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant
On February 26, 2013, The Office of Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) submitted an application for the 2013-14 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) grant to the Florida Department of Agriculture for the following schools: Cambridge Elementary and Endeavour Elementary. As a reminder, the original application came before the Board on February 26, 2013.
We are pleased to report that both schools have been selected to participate in this program which will operate from July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2014. Funding is estimated at $71,250 and does not require a grant match. FNS attended a training workshop on May 21, 2013 via webinar, 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 are 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 2013-14 school year.
