2017-18 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant
On July 17, 2017, the Office of Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) submitted and application for the 2017-18 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 went before the Board on August 8, 2017. We are pleased to report that all three schools have been selected to participate in this program from October 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018. Funding is estimated at $115,500 and does not require a grant match. 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 2017-18 school year.
