School Food FOCUS-The Pew Charitable Trusts Standard to Minimize the Use of Antibiotics in Poultry

"The School Food FOCUS National Procurement Initiative (NPI) and The Pew Charitable Trusts (Pew) have honed a standard that reflects the concerns of FOCUS school districts about the public health impact of antibiotic overuse in food animal production. This program seeks to minimize antibiotic use to protect these drugs, which are the world’s most important, and most vulnerable, tools for combating infectious disease. It also acknowledges the value of some antibiotic applications, in very limited
circumstances, for the treatment of certain illnesses in poultry."
