Idaho Schools To Offer Greek Yogurt As A Meat Substitute
Idaho is one of four states that will participate in a program to offer Greek yogurt as a meat substitute in meals served at public schools.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Monday announced it was taking bids through July 22 to supply orders for schools in Idaho, Arizona, New York and Tennessee.
The USDA decided in January to classify Greek yogurt as an accepted meat alternative because of its high protein content. If the pilot program succeeds, Greek yogurt could become a permanent part of the school lunch program nationwide.
Chobani, a manufacturer of Greek Yogurt, opened a plant in Twin Falls nearly a year ago.
