School Food Purchasing

MAPC has partnered with Massachusetts Farm to School to support the Northeast Food for Schools program. We conducted a Request for Proposal (RFP) procurement that enables Massachusetts school districts to more easily set up independent contracts with awarded vendors to purchase healthy and regional food for the 2023-2024 school year. Schools using the MAPC RFP do not need to undertake additional procurement processes (e.g., 3 quotes / RFQ, RFP, IFB) during their contracting process.

Learn more about products, prices, and contact information for the Awarded Vendors below. Reach out to awarded vendors you are interested in working with to discuss a purchasing relationship.
