Through the Fresh Fruits and Vegetables (FFV) Program, the students learn to at least taste each new item to decide which ones they like and which they don’t. The FFV Program has opened up a whole new world of flavors to the K through 5th grade students. Each time a new fruit or vegetable is served, students find out if they like it or not. Now, how-ever, because of the Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Program, The students know WHY they do or do not like each item.
