National Food Group’s Commodity Processing Food Service Program
As a USDA nationally approved processor, we help make the commodity diversion process simple so schools are able to feed their students with the best food at the best value. We work closely with K-12 schools to help them navigate the Commodity Processing process, set up appropriate contracts and fulfill them by manufacturing and delivering single-serving products to be used in food service programs. We value our role in contributing to better quality and more wholesome menu options for the nation’s children while helping school districts realize substantial savings

Step 3 - Divert Your Entitlement
Log in to your state or co-op food distribution website or WBSCM. Using the commodity codes supplied by your Account Manager, divert your commodities based on your commodity calculator worksheet. Once your state agency submits your order and the USDA has purchased the commodity, your distributor or National Food Group Account Manager will contact you about placing an order.
