Upperman High School Students Love Bulk Milk Dispensers

Upperman High School's cafeteria now includes bulk milk dispensers for all students. Students love the taste and accessibility of the cold milk from the dispensers, choosing to reenter the line for milk refills. The cafeteria usually served approximately 350 8-oz servings at lunchtime when using cartons. The milk dispensers, however, served over 600 8 - oz servings on their first day. The dispensers were funded via TN Dairy Promotion and Dairy Optimization Grants to increase milk consumption. Based on early reactions, the bulk milk dispensers are a success.
