Universal Free Breakfast for Montgomery County Schools
Montgomery County Schools offer breakfast at no charge (Universal School Breakfast) to every student in the Montgomery County School system. Offering universal breakfast optimizes the impact of switching to an alternative breakfast model, works to boost participation numbers in all grade levels, and removes the burden of collecting fees during the school year.
Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program
Encouraging Students to Try New Fruits and Vegetables
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is an important tool in our efforts to combat childhood obesity. The program has been successful in introducing elementary school children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have the opportunity to sample. The various partnerships that FNS and state agencies have developed in the public and private sectors, as well as the dedicated work of school administrators, have contributed to the overall success and acceptance of the program. Every elementary school in Montgomery County participates in the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program during the 2019-2020 school year.
