Can the fruits/vegetables be provided at parent/teacher conferences? At other function such as "Granparent Day" or an evening or weekend program where most the building's children gather but neighborhood children also attend?

Answer: 

No.  Fruits and vegetables may only be served during the school day.  Please note that the FFVP does not allow teacher or administrator fruit baskets, which were incorrectly purchased by some schools for promotional purposes when FFVP was initially implemented.  Free fruits and vegetables are intended for all children enrolled in participating schools and cannot be used as gifts or rewards.
