Vendor Question: How did ISL and purveyors’ large jumps and falls in price last year? Did purveyors have to honor a $23ish price that was bid a year ago? The bid from last year was for pricing for estimated quantities for the entire school year, which significantly limited vendor responses. Therefore, ISL received the majority of fresh fruits and vegetable items from USDA. The DOD USDA Commodity Distribution Program provided those items. This year, the bid for produce is through December 2017 and not for the entire school year.
