PearFection Award


You have earned a Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) Pear-fection Award for achievements in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable program (FFVP). By successfully operating FFVP during the 2020-2021 school year you and your nutrition team demonstrated your commitment to building healthy campus environments. This new award acknowledges your hard work to provide access to fresh fruit and vegetables for your students.

TDA introduced the Pear-fection Award as a pilot program this year to recognize FFVP participants for meeting program targets throughout the year and using the funding allocation. Feedback from the pilot will be vital to launching the full FFVP Pear-fection Award program in the 2021-2022 school year. Your success will help others maximize the potential for FFVP in Texas.
All three Vidor ISD elementary schools received the award.
Federally assisted nutrition programs benefit entire communities as well as the children participating. Your FFVP efforts support local agricultural economies and show students how to choose the fresh foods that help families thrive. Thank you for all your organization does to build a heathier Lone Star State.
