The specifications contained herein are intended to cover the furnishing and delivery of fresh produce to the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), Division of Food and Nutrition Services (DFNS) Warehouse, located at 8401 Turkey Thicket Drive. Gaithersburg, Maryland 20879 and other MCPS sites within Montgomery County, Maryland as scheduled. The goal of this RFP is to provide access to high-quality fresh produce to over 162,000 students in approximately 211 MCPS schools. DFNS desires to increase the variety of fresh fruits and vegetables that are locally grown. Locally grown items will decrease the distance that the fresh produce must be shipped between farm and the district. Locally grown will be defined first within the State of Maryland and then the states of Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and North Carolina. It is the intention of DFNS to highlight the locally grown items that are on the menus, preferably with the name of the farm.
