Choosing a Partner On Price Alone Can Create Long-Term, Costly Issues in Your School Nutrition Program
Too often, when K-12 school districts are searching for a nutrition service provider, they award the contract to the provider with the lowest bid without considering all factors. However, that option could be the costliest. The vendor may be priced low for a reason — namely, because they don’t bring the highest quality services and products to the table. As a result, you may experience costly outcomes, such as hiring difficulties, high staff turnover, poor quality meals and low student participation.
In this guide, we expose eight hidden costs of a low bid. We also share what a good nutrition program could look like if your district chose a service provider that brings the highest level of service to your schools.
