NY yogurt makers picked for school lunch program

School children in seven states will be eating New York yogurt this fall under a school lunch progra

ALBANY — School children in seven states will be eating New York yogurt this fall under a school lunch program operated by the federal government.

U.S. senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer announced that Chobani and Upstate Niagara won a bid to supply yogurt for the program.

The pilot initiative will provide yogurt to students in Arizona, California, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, New York and Mississippi for the first month of the school year.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is set to consider proposals to provide yogurt for the rest of the school year.

Gillibrand says the involvement by the state's yogurt industry is great news for the state's dairy industry.
