Can a non-reimbursable item (such as juice or a dip for fruit) be served with the fresh fruit and vegetable snack if the school utilizes another fund to cover the cost of the non-reimbursable item? Would the FFVP snack still be reimbursable?

Answer: 

No.  The school would not be able to be reimbursed for the FFVP snack if they served a non-reimbursable item during the fruit and vegetable snack service.  The FFVP does not allow items like juice or dip for fruits to be served.  The FFVP snack and the non-reimbursable item would need to be served during 2 separate snack services in order for the FFVP snack be considered eligible for reimbursement.
