USDA Bid to Bring Even More Greek Yogurt to Schoolchildren

Chobani’s mission since day one has been to offer better food for more people, and as an integral part of our ongoing work we’re thrilled to announce that Chobani has been selected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) as the main provider of Greek Yogurt to K-12 school meal programs around the country. This is one of the most important things we can do as a company, which is why we decided to offer our products to schools at significantly reduced prices to allow any and every school to participate.


Chobani has a successful history of partnering with the USDA on the school lunch program. We were selected by the USDA in 2013 to be the exclusive provider of Greek Yogurt in a pilot program in several states, an initiative that was considered an outstanding success and expanded in early 2015 as a permanent program. This most recent bid was the first that invited all states to participate, with 10 states electing to take part: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Idaho, Iowa, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Vermont, and Washington. Officials expect other states to participate in this program in the coming school year.

Today’s announcement confirms the success of these programs, designed to evaluate the benefits of adding Greek Yogurt to school meal programs as a healthy protein choice for students.

We’re excited to continue working with the USDA to help make authentic Chobani Greek Yogurt available for nutrition professionals to put healthy and delicious options on school menus and lunch trays!
