Bill Bringing Whole Milk Back to Pennsylvania Schools Moves Forward

Date: April 06, 2022

The House Agriculture and Rural Affairs committee recently approved HB 2397 (Lawrence), which would authorize Pennsylvania school boards to purchase whole and reduced-fat milk and make it available to students. Whole and reduced-fat milk was dropped from the school lunch program on the promise that doing so would cut down on childhood obesity and encourage healthier eating, however there is little evidence that it has. Additionally, studies have shown a sharp decline in school milk consumption since the low and no-fat milk law went into effect. HB 2397 is now before the full House and is expected to be considered this Spring.
