Fruit and Veggie Program

Fruit and Veggie Program
Sweetwater Elementary School has been awarded a grant from the ND School Lunch Program for the past four years to provide a free fresh fruit or vegetable snack each day for every student in our school. With all of the different fresh fruits and vegetables offered throughout the year, students are acquiring a "taste" for many different healthy foods!
More about the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program: 
 
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables to students in participating elementary schools during the school day. The goal of the FFVP is to improve children’s overall diet and create healthier eating habits to impact their present and future health. The FFVP helps schools create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices, expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience, and increasing children’s fruit and vegetable consumption.
