Request for Quotes - Livingston & Washtenaw County Farm to School Programs

Attention farmers and vendors:


Participating school food service directors in Livingston and Washtenaw Counties are now accepting proposal for Michigan-grown fruits and vegetables for delivery to any or all of the following school districts:

·         Chelsea School District

·         Dexter Community School District

·         Fowlerville Community Schools

·         Hartland Consolidated Schools

·         Howell Public School District

·         Saline Area Schools

·         Whitmore Lake Public Schools


Proposals will be accepted for wide variety of locally-grown fruits and vegetables for the 2010/2011 school year for all school districts, some of which will also operate summer food service programs in the summer of 2011. This is a great way for farmers in and around Livingston and Washtenaw Counties to diversify or expand their markets!


Please see the attached cover letter and bid packet for details. Contact the participating school food service directors directly  if you have any questions about this market opportunity- their contact information is included in the cover letter. Note that proposals are due by noon on August 9th, 2010. Feel free to contact me or Michaelle Rehmann of the Food System Economic Partnership (FSEP) ( or 517-490-6912)  for additional information as well.


Thanks so much,
