2009-2010 Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant Program applications are now available!

Hi all,

The Michigan Department of Education has just made available applications for the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) grants for the 2009/10 school year. Please click here for more information.


Interested applicants should first review the bulleted documents on this website – FFVP Grant Available Memo, Applying for the 2009/10 FFVP,  and Application Scoring Criteria  – as they contain new and important information about the grant program for this year. Only elementary schools with 50% or more students eligible for free and reduced-price meals may apply. Applications are due by September 24, 2009.


This grant program is a great way to increase kids’ access to fresh produce, including locally-grown fruits and vegetables!
