The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program helps low-income elementary schools serve students fresh fruits and vegetables as snacks.
The program reaches nearly three million elementary school children in low-income neighborhoods every year. And it works! Students who participate in the program eat more fruits and vegetables.
USDA is working to improve the program but it needs to hear from you. You can support healthy eating in schools by sending USDA a quick email now!
