The Dairy Council of Florida partners with Florida school nutrition services to provide equipment and resources that focus on increasing meal participation and dairy consumption. Our goal is to develop a specialized plan to pair innovative opportunities with your current school district's meal needs. We encourage you to explore the variety of opportunities we have listed below. To schedule a consultation for your district, please contact Teresa Moran-Wiebe at teresa@floridamilk.com.

Fuel Up with Dairy Friday Promotion

Through the Fuel Up with Dairy Friday promotion, you can leverage your existing equipment, including breakfast carts, to create an exciting promotion for students to select new and innovative dairy options. The goal is to have these dairy items become part of the regular menu at your district's schools and see an increase in dairy consumption.
