2012-13 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant
On April 10, 2012, The Office of Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) submitted an application for the 2012-13 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 April 10, 2012.
We are pleased to report that both schools have been selected to participate in this program which will operate from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2012. Funding is estimated at $67,150 and does not require a grant match. FNS attended a training workshop on May 23, 2012 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 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 2012-13 school year.
