USDA Deems Greek Yogurt Pilot Program In Schools A Success

January 9, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The USDA’s three-month Greek yogurt pilot program conducted in schools in New York and three other states was “a great success,” Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced. New York is a major producer of Greek yogurt, and is home to some of the largest Greek yogurt and dairy producers, including Chobani. During the program, schools in New York, Tennessee, Idaho and Arizona consumed 200,000 pounds of high-protein Greek yogurt worth $300,000, Schumer said. The pilot program was designed to test the cost-effectiveness of the USDA purchasing Greek yogurt for schools that participate in the National School Lunch Program. The USDA is likely to expand the program nationwide.
