New on the Food Buying Guide

The USDA recently released an update to the Exhibit A Grains Tool on both the web and mobile app of the Food Buying Guide, which now requires the program and meal to be selected in order to filter the search results to only creditable grain items for that specific program. Haven't used the Food Buying Guide Exhibit A Grains tool? We've got some great webinars for you to learn the basics, as well as a refresher on how to calculate ounce equivalents of grains.
