Are dates a reimbursable item under FFVP?

Answer: 

The answer is possibly.  Dates are fine to serve for FFVP as long as they are dried and picked from the tree.  If the dates were intentionally left on the tree to be dried, then they are considered a reimbursable item because the growers classify the dates as fresh.  If the dates are intentionally picked and dried, they are considered a dried fruit and would not be reimbursable.
