New York Thursdays bring foods grown and raised in New York state to New York public school cafeterias every Thursday, to help students learn how much of what they eat comes from local farms and dairies. Extend this learning from the cafeteria to the classroom by taking your students on a video field trip to a New York dairy farm.

NYS 30% Initiative

Did you know that school districts who purchase at least 30% of ingredients for their school lunch programs from New York farms can receive 25 cents per meal in reimbursement?

This is known as the “30% NYS Initiative” and was created to help provide students with a variety of healthy farm fresh products in their school meal programs.
