Chobani was born in Upstate New York and then built a second home in Twin Falls, Idaho. By coincidence, that’s the same geographical story for New York native and Twin Falls resident Art Hoag. This summer, in celebration of his 71st birthday, he sets off on a sentimental bicycle journey from Home to Home, Plant to Plant.
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.
Since day one at Chobani, we’ve been committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work, with a focus on growing together. This year, we were asked to participate in a nationwide contest, “America’s Best Communities Adopt-A-Community Program,” to partner with a community to accelerate their local economy. The results are in and Chobani is thrilled to announce that we have been paired with the hometown of our corporate headquarters, Norwich, NY.
