SALT LAKE CITY –  Nearly 49,000 Utah elementary students from low-income schools throughout the state have received a great opportunity provided through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program provides all children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables outside of the lunch period.

The goal of the program 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.
  • Make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health.
  • Introduce healthy snack options.

  Funding for the program comes from the USDA Farm Bill for the National School Lunch Program. Utah’s total funding for the program is $2.8 million and it is available through an application process. Preference is given to schools with low income households.
