Local Sourcing of Food for School Cafeterias

Department: DOE

Challenge: No connection between school cafeteria and local farmers. School cafeteria's don't share collaborate with menus or ordering supplies. They are also don't have an easy way to source local produce if it's available.

Agreement from schools (Liability). Procurement would need to be changed (DAGS), Administration of want/needs from schools to farmers.

Suggested Solution: On-line marketplace where schools could share needs, farmers could share excess surplus or ability to cover food needs.

Note: Might be able to start with charter schools first since they don't participate in the traditional school lunch programs.
