Chobani part of USDA pilot program

Chenango County’s own Chobani brand Greek yogurt will be the yogurt of choice in a USDA Pilot program set to begin in September.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Chenango County’s own Chobani brand Greek yogurt will be the yogurt of choice in a USDA Pilot program set to begin in September.

School Districts in four states – including New York – will start serving Greek yogurt to students.

The program is intended to look at the cost effectiveness of the high-protein snack in the school lunch program, which feeds 31 million students each month.

If the program is successful in the trial states, Greek yogurt could become a fixture on the USDA foods list for school meals.
