We are excited to announce that ALL of our district's schools have been qualified to participate in the Federal Community Eligibility Provision program which allows us to offer all students enrolled at these schools breakfast and lunch at no cost.
Participating schools are: Brookdale Elementary, Central Avenue Elementary, Christensen Elementary, Collins Elementary, Elmhurst Elementary, Harvard Elementary, James Sales Elementary, Midland Elementary, Ford Middle, Keithley Middle, Franklin Pierce High School, GATES High School, Washington High School, and the Early Learning Center.
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) became a permanent program as a result of The Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008 (Farm Bill). The FFVP provides all children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables served during the school day. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables. All students are encouraged to take an “adventure bite” if something is new and different. The FFVP also encourages schools to develop partnerships at the state and local level for support in implementing and operating the program.
The goal of the FFVP is to create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices, expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience, increase children's fruit and vegetable consumption, and make a difference in children's diets to impact their present and future health.
Participating schools are: Brookdale Elementary, Elmhurst Elementary, Christensen Elementary, Harvard Elementary, James Sales Elementary and Midland Elementary.
