NY schools chosen for Greek yogurt pilot program

ALBANY -- U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer says New York is one of four states chosen to participate in a U.S. Department of Agriculture pilot program to purchase Greek yogurt for schools.
 
The USDA says participating schools in Tennessee, Idaho, and Arizona will also test in the upcoming school year whether it's cost effective for the agency to buy Greek yogurt on behalf of schools operating the National School Lunch Program.
 
Since yogurt is highly perishable, the USDA chose four states regionally that have differing proximity to yogurt manufacturers and plans to test distribution through various warehousing models.
 
If it works, the program could become national.
 
Schumer says the effort should further boost demand for New York yogurt companies and their dairy suppliers.
