An Update on Bulk Milk Dispensers in TN Schools

Though COVID-19 slowed the move toward self-serve bulk milk dispensers in schools in the 2020-2021 school year, Tennessee schools are making up for this lost time. Once school returns this fall, all bulk milk dispensers that have been obtained via The Dairy Alliance grants will be fully operational. 9 machines were funded in 2020 and in 2021, 18 additional bulk milk dispensers are currently planned. Unless restrictions change, this means that a total of 27 bulk milk dispensers will launch this next school year, providing more Tennessee students the chance to choose more milk at mealtimes.
