Governor Wolf announces $7 mln funding for free healthy snacks in Pennsylvania schools

Governor Tom Wolf has stated that 266 elementary schools will receive $7 million in grant funding to provide students with fresh fruit and vegetable snacks. The funding was awarded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP).

Wolf: “Healthy foods are essential to children’s growth, learning, development, and well-being, and this funding will help more students access nutritious food while school is in session. The fresh fruits and vegetables offered through these grants will help students establish healthy eating habits, grow stronger, and stay focused and engaged in the classroom.”

A list of the 2022-23 grant recipients is available on the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s (PDE) School Nutrition Programs webpage.
