We are happy to announce that the Northwood Elementary School was selected to participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) during the 2020-2021 school year.
The goals of this grant program are to:
Create healthier school environments by providing healthier school choices.
Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience.
Increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption.
Make a difference in children’s diets to impact their current and future health.
A fresh fruit or vegetable snack will be offered to your student approximately four times per week. FFVP snacks will generally be served in the afternoon.
More information about the FFVP can be found at the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program website at https://dpi.wi.gov/school-nutrition/programs/fresh-fruit-vegetable.
If you have questions about the FFVP, please contact the school at 715-466-2297.
