Meet our 2019-2020 Farm to School Partner Farms

For the 2019-2020 school year, MPS is buying 40 different varieties of vegetables and fruits from 13 farms and farm cooperatives in the region. Please see the map below for partner farm details.

Do you want to grow produce for us?

MPS Culinary & Wellness Services releases a Farm to School Request for Proposal (RFP) every winter to identify partner farms (and farm groups) and Farm to School items for the following school year through a competitive bidding process. All interested farms, farm cooperatives, food hubs, and aggregators are invited to complete the RFP to share information about their farm(s) and bid on specific produce items. Farm to School partner farms are selected based on price, produce quality, environmental sustainability, supplier diversity, and grower values to provide sustainably-grown produce to our school district.
