The Fruit & Vegetable Consumption Coalition (FVCC)
is dedicated to providing leadership that can help accelerate increased nationwide access to and demand for all forms of fruits and vegetables, for improved public health. Working together, FVCC members help elevate new fruit and vegetable eating behaviors as a national priority, central to all U.S. public health initiatives, to help close the current consumption gap.
