We are happy to announce that Greenwood Elementary was selected to participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) during the 2019-2020 school year.
The goals of this grant program are to:
- Create healthier school environments by providing healthier school choices.
- Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience.
- Increase children's fruit and vegetable consumption.
- Make a difference in children's diets to impact their current and future health.
A fresh fruit or vegetable snack will be offered to your student approximately 1 time per week. FFVP snacks will generally be served mid-morning or early afternoon.
