Chobani Wins Bid To Provide Yogurt To Schools For One Month Pilot Program

Luke Tubia, WIBX

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded New York’s Chobani Yogurt with a one month contract to provide their yogurt to seven schools across the U.S. The announcement was made by U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand in conjunction with Congressman Richard Hanna.

The program is part of the USDA’s School Lunch Pilot Program in New York, Arizona, Idaho, California, Iowa, Illinois and Mississippi.

Chobani will provide yogurt to schools beginning in August and running through September.

The USDA will then consider bids from multiple companies to provide Greek yogurt for the rest of the school year.

“It’s excellent that more students throughout the country will be able to enjoy Greek yogurt as part of their school meals,” Hanna said. “Upstate New York’s own Chobani is leading this program and providing a nutritious and healthy option for our children. This is another tremendous opportunity for Chobani, for our state’s growing Greek yogurt industry and for the hardworking Upstate dairy farmers who support it.”
