Which commodities does the Federal Government provide for school lunches?



  1. 0 Votes

    The school lunch commodity program is a way to supplement meals with unprocessed or partially processed agricultural products. The program has been pushed recently in an effort to fight childhood obesity by providing lower-calorie foods that have high nutritional value. The purpose of the program is to not only provide children with healthier food, but to help agricultural producers to have a more stable market.

    Commodities included in this program are varied, everything from fruits and vegetables to cheese and tomato sauce. Fresh fruits and vegetables, however, are not generally included in the commodity program because they are not as school cafeteria-friendly as canned and frozen products.
