May part of the 10% administrative funds be used for costs such as a field trip to an orchard or a farm market or for planting a garden or orchard at the school?
No. Costs associated with promotional activities cannot be funded by the FFVP. Schools may no longer use administrative funds to purchase promotional activities. If a school chooses to purchase such items, the money that is spent has to come from either the nonprofit school food service account or the general fund.
FFVP funds may not be used for the purchase of any materials for school gardens. (Seeds, tools, equipment)
