Agenda Item: VII.B.

Consider/Approve Central Cafeteria Produce Bid for the 2010 – 2011 School Year

Background Information:

In addition to advertising, the Reelfoot Area Consortium solicited bids from Hardin’s-Sysco, U. S. Foodservice and Gordon Foodservcie for the purchase of produce (specifications attached) for the 2010 – 2011 school year. Funds are budgeted in the FY11 Central Cafeteria Fund for these purchases. The Consortium received bids for the purchase of produce from Hardin’s-Sysco and U. S. Foodservice, and determined that the low bid was submitted by U. S. Foodservice.

The consortium approved the low bid submitted as noted above; however, each individual school board must accept the bid.

Staff Recommendation:

I concur with the recommendation set forth by the Reelfoot Area Consortium and Ms. Judy Denman and recommend approval of the low bid submitted by U. S. Foodservice.
