The National School Lunch Act requires school food authorities (SFAs) to purchase, to the maximum extent practicable, domestic commodities or products.

Dairy Products Provide Essential Nutrients for Kids’ Growth and Development

Dietary Guidelines for Americans state that children need more vitamin D, calcium, and potassium. Hiland Dairy provides regular or flavored milk to schools to fulfill all three needs.
