USDA Foods

Federal USDA Foods support American agricultural producers by providing schools with healthy and nutritious food to Federal child nutrition programs. A wide variety of fruits and vegetables, grains, cereals and nuts, as well as dairy and meat products, are available as USDA purchased commodities. Many products are formulated to be low in fat and have lower sugar and sodium content than commercial counterparts. USDA Foods account for approximately 15-20% of the foods used by school nutrition programs.
