The Oregon Department of Education conducted Requests for Proposals for pricing of USDA Foods processed end products. The resulting pricing agreements are on this page. The products and prices are available to all Oregon National School Lunch Program Recipient Agencies. They have been competitively procured in compliance with all Federal and State Procurement regulations. Sponsors are responsible for diverting USDA Foods to these processors and arranging for orders/delivery with the processor/broker if they wish to use the agreements. Processors may ship via direct delivery, through a distributor, or through the state warehouse (GS Foods/Tools for Schools).
This document provides price, item number, pass through value credit, crediting for meal pattern, allergen information, minimum order size, delivery terms and much more. ODE can provide original RFP, contract, and amendments upon request. Please refer to the
ODE Diversion/Processing page, SEPDS dropdown box, to look up more specific processor information for products in the agreements.
