USDA and the Department of Defense (DoD) - Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) that supplies fresh fruits and vegetable for the military services has partnered to increase availability of fresh produce to agencies participating in the USDA Foods Program through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Participating agencies must allocate a portion of their USDA entitlement during the annual ordering period. Ordering and distribution of allocated entitlement dollars are coordinated through the DoD Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Ordering System (FFAVORS).
