The USDA Foods Program provides 100% American grown foods such as meats, vegetables, fruits, grains, and dairy products to schools participating in the National School Lunch Program through entitlement funds.

DoD Fresh Program

The Department of Defense (DoD) Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program allows schools to use USDA Foods entitlement dollars to buy fresh produce.

  • The program is operated by the Defense Logistics Agency at the Department of Defense. USDA does not impose a cap on the amount of entitlement used through this program and allows the state to change DoD Fresh allocations throughout the year.
  • Sysco holds the contract to deliver the DoD Fresh Program to Montana schools and institutions. The DoD goes out to bid every 18 months. The Montana Office of Public Instruction does not hold the delivery contract but works with the DoD to provide Montana schools and institutions the best service possible.
