Impossible Meat to Be Served in Select California, Washington, and Oklahoma K-12 Schools
In another stride toward connecting the country’s youth to steps toward climate change, Impossible Foods has secured accreditation to be served in K-12 schools!
Alongside Impossible Foods’s “The Birds and the Trees” initiative (a resource of tools to help youth connect with their parents on steps they can make to help stop climate change), the brand has just received Child Nutrition labels to allow for expansion into schools. From a recent survey of 1,200 kids across the US, 7 in 10 students feel they have the power to make a difference in climate change, and it’s important to nearly 90% that they do.
The Child Nutrition labels come after a diligent accreditation process from the USDA and allow Impossible burgers to be added to breakfast and lunch menus in schools, helping meet the daily nutritional needs of school-aged children while providing a delicious plant-based option to enjoy. As part of the initial launch, the brand will be offering free cases of its meat to schools. The first districts kicking off the rollout are located in Palo Alto, CA, Aberdeen, WA, Deer Creek, OK, and Union City, OK. Test dishes include street tacos, spaghetti with meat sauce, and Frito pie.
