NY 30% Initiative Eligible Product Database

NY 30% Initiative Eligible Product Database

The NY Product Database is a collection of products that qualify for the 30% NY Initiative, and are widely available for purchase by School Food Authorities (SFAs) for use in their lunch programs. All products are either NY Grown & Certified, or contain 51% or more raw NY agricultural product. The database was created by Cornell Cooperative Extension - Harvest NY, with input from NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets, NYS Department of Education, SFAs, and other partners.

Included in this suite of resources is a public link to the NY 30% Initiative Eligible Product Database, a video tutorial on how to use the database, and a PDF guide. Please be sure to refer to the video and/or the PDF before you consider purchasing any of these products, or claiming them as part of your 30% Initiative audit. The database is updated regularly with new products, vendors, and information. **Note: You may be prompted to login or create an Airtable account the first time you access the database--don't worry! You do not need to have an account to access the database.**
