At Oregon Dairy Council, we support students, educators, schools, and communities by promoting access to nutritious school meals, promoting healthy and balanced lifestyles and the inclusion of dairy foods as sources of sustainable, nutrition for students of all ages.

In schools and communities throughout Oregon, ODC and its many partners are actively involved with supporting quality education, active lifestyles and healthy communities. Reach out to us to find out how we’re supporting your schools and local community.

Fuel Up Program

The Fuel Up program is an initiative created by America’s dairy farmers to help meet the needs of schools across the country when it comes to fueling healthy bodies and minds. This program is focused on educators and students, in conjunction with partners like ODC, to make a difference in their schools and communities.

School and Summer Meals

Participating in USDA-compliant school meals and summer meal programs are a great way to help your child build nutritious routines and eat healthy food. Research tells us that eating breakfast is crucial for students to kickstart their energy for the day and support cognition. That is why we are doing our part to support schools across the state with options for breakfast that include nutritious and delicious dairy foods.
