Pilot Program:Directs USDA to conduct a pilot program to provide school districts with plant-based alternate protein products and non-dairy milk substitutes to determine which products students like best and are easy to prepare.
More Plant-Based Commodities:Based on the pilot’s evaluation, the USDA will include identified plant-based alternate protein products and non-dairy milk substitutes in its commodities purchase program, thus reducing their costs for school districts.
Incentives for Schools to Offer Healthy Plant-Based Meals:School districts that provide at least two-thirds of the students with a plant-based entrée option on their daily lunch menus will receive supplemental commodity assistance.
Increased Availability of Milk Alternatives:Schools will offer students who cannot or do not want to drink milk a healthy substitute that meets nutritional standards established by USDA for protein, calcium, vitamin D, and other key nutrients.
