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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
