domestic fruit acreage1
– California produces nearly all of the
country’s crop of Clingstone peaches,
dried plums and raisins1

and increased prices

USDA Foods Can Be Local and
Support Local Purchases
“USDA is a partner in meeting my local
purchasing goals. I often shift my entitlement
to products that are not available locally and
to products, like the roast chicken, that USDA
Foods is able to offer at a lower price point
than I could get as an individual school
district.”
