Food Programs

Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) provides students in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables during school. The program is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options to improve eating habits that combat childhood obesity. 

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 to support the program.

Breakfast Programs

Hungry students 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 provides ¼ of your student’s nutritional needs, meets Dietary Guidelines recommendations and offers students a chance to eat breakfast with their friends. With the passage of Healthy School Meals for All, all students enrolled in a Jeffco Public School site that participates in the School Breakfast Program may participate in breakfast at no cost. Thank you for helping us make sure that all of our students start the school day alert, well-nourished and ready to learn. The Jeffco FNS Team thanks you for the opportunity to provide meals to your students!
