**NOTE: School staff must be available for all DoD Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program deliveries from the vendor, Creation Gardens. Schools should immediately report all school delays and closures to the vendor. Creation Gardens is contracted to make deliveries Monday through Friday from 6:00AM to 2:30PM during the school food authority's local time.
School Food Authorities (SFAs) are required by USDA to receipt orders in FFAVORS within 5 days of delivery.

The USDA DoD Fresh Program is an optional program and participation is not required. If you decide to participate, you will set aside a portion of your USDA Foods entitlement dollars. Your school corporation can commit as much of your entitlement to the program as you choose. USDA will handle all bills up to the amount of the entitlement you set aside. This is not the same as the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable (FFVP).
