Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program (FFVP)

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the school day.  The program is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthful snack options, and is seen as an important catalyst for change in efforts to combat childhood obesity by helping children learn more healthful eating habits. The FFVP introduces school children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to sample.The FFVP also encourages schools to develop partnerships at the state and local level for support in implementing and operating the program.

BREAKFAST PROGRAMS

Check out our breakfast menus here!

We all know that hungry children have a more difficult time doing their best work in the classroom. That’s why Jeffco Food and Nutrition services (FNS) wants to encourage all students to begin their school day with a nutritious, great-tasting breakfast.

School breakfast makes good sense – it provides ¼ of your child’s nutritional needs, meets Dietary Guidelines recommendations, and offers children a chance to eat breakfast with their friends.  It’s very affordable and many students, possibly yours, already qualify for free breakfast meals.

Thank you for helping us make sure that all of our students start the school day alert, well-nourished and ready to learn.  Whether joining us for breakfast or one of our delicious lunch meals, the Jeffco FNS Team wants to say “Thank You” for the opportunity to provide meals to your student(s).  We look forward to serving them this school year!
