Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Available at Public Elementary Schools

 The Department of Education has announced the availability of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) for School Year 2012-2013. Administrators of public elementary schools in the St. Thomas-St. John and St. Croix districts are encouraged to apply for participation in the $28,113 funded program, according to a press release issued Wednesday by the V.I. Department of Education.
“Through the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program children at participating schools will receive a variety of free, fresh fruits and vegetables at specified times during the school day,” said Angela Frett, state director of Special Nutrition Programs. “It’s an effective and creative way to introduce fresh fruits and vegetables to children as healthy snack options.”
Applications may be picked up on St. Thomas at the Special Nutrition Programs Office located at the bottom of Polyberg Hill in the former J. Antonio Jarvis Annex School or on St. Croix at the Department of Education’s Main Complex located at 2133 Hospital Street, Christiansted. Applications may also be requested by e-mail. Completed applications are due in the Special Nutrition Programs offices no later than Wednesday, Oct. 31.
For more information on the program, contact Belinda Sanderson at 774-0100 ext. 2816 on St. Thomas or Janice Thomas at 773-1095 ext. 7082 on St. Croix.
