2016-17 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant
On May 25, 2016, The Office of Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) submitted an application for the 2016-17 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) grant to the Florida Department of Agriculture for the following schools: Cambridge Elementary, Endeavour Elementary and Saturn Elementary. As a reminder, the original application came before the Board on May 26, 2016. We are pleased to report that all three schools have been selected to participate in this program which has a grant time frame of July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017. Funding is estimated at $114,550 and does not require a grant match. FNS will be attending a training workshop via webinar which will cover all the requirements for operating this program. FNS will partner with Cambridge, Endeavour and Saturn Elementary schools to insure all criteria for successfully operating the FFVP are met throughout the school year.
Accept the grant for Cambridge, Endeavour and Saturn Elementary schools to participate in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) for the 2016-17 school year.
