Department of Defense Fresh Produce
Twice per year sponsors are able to allocate a portion of their entitlement towards DoD Fresh on a Preference “Commodity” Survey. The Food Distribution Program will coordinate with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to load the approved entitlement into the Fresh Fruits And Vegetables Order Receipt System (FFAVORS). Sponsors place weekly orders in FFAVORS and produce is delivered from the program’s contracted vendor (currently Bergin Fruit and Nut Company).
All shipping and handling fees are factored into the price listed in the catalog, no hidden costs. This is the only distribution model in which sponsors participate to utilize entitlement towards fresh fruits and vegetables.
This is the Minnesota Food Distribution Program (FDP) answers to the frequently asked questions from FDP participants related to the Department of Defense Fresh Produce Program.
