Colorado Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Pilot Program Enabling Statutes

The Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Pilot Program provides students in participating public schools with free fruit and vegetables. Interested school districts apply to the program through the Department of Education. Eligible schools are selected based on a variety of criteria, one of which is to ensure that a certain percentage of students enrolled in a particular school district are eligible for reduced or free lunch under federal law. The law also requires participating schools to use Colorado fruits and vegetables to the maximum extent possible.
