USDA Foods

Food DistributionOur mission is to support the child nutrition programs throughout the State of Idaho by providing USDA Foods to eligible programs.

USDA purchases foods through direct appropriations from Congress, under the surplus removal program and price support activities. The foods are distributed to State agencies for use by eligible outlets, including schools.

Idaho works with several programs throughout the state and offers a variety of food items to these programs. These programs include schools and institutions participating in the NSLP, Summer Food Programs (SFSP), and eligible institutions participating in the Nutrition Services Incentive Program (NSIP).

Products available through the USDA-donated USDA Foods program are items such as meats, vegetables, fruits, grains, and dairy products.

Idaho has a strong processing program. Through the USDA programs the State of Idaho has contracted with commercial food processors to convert bulk or raw USDA Foods into more convenient ready-to-use products. Most of the USDA Foods processed through this program go to schools participating in the National School Lunch Program.
