What are the requirements for schools to provide nutrition education?

Answer: 

Nutrition education is not currently required however FNS strongly encourages schools to provide nutrition education as a component of the FFVP.  Providing nutrition is part of helping schools create a healthier school environment

Can the FFVP be used in other programs such as during a summer school program or in a year-round school?

Answer: 

The FFVP cannot be served as part of summer school sessions.  The FFVP may be provided during a “year-round school’s” summer session as this is considered part of the regular school year.

Can schools bid FFVP, NSLP and SBP purchases together?

Answer: 

Yes.  However, schools must be able to demonstrate which items are purchased for the FFVP.

Should schools develop a budget for the FFVP?

Answer: 

It is prudent for schools to develop a budget in order to assist in the timely expenditure of funds and FNS strongly encourages schools to do so.

How much of a school's FFVP grant allocation can the State agency advance to the school?

Answer: 

None.  The FFVP operates on a reimbursement basis.  Schools are reimbursed based on their monthly submission of a claim for reimbursement.  The State Agency cannot provide advance FFVP funding.
