“The Urban School Food Alliance shares best practices and uses its purchasing power to continue to drive quality up and costs down while incorporating sound environmental practices. ”
The Urban School Food Alliance was created by school food professionals in 2012 to address the unique needs of the nation’s largest school districts. The nonprofit group allows the districts to share best practices and leverage their purchasing power to continue to drive quality up and costs down while incorporating sound environmental practices. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Miami-Dade, Orange County in Orlando, Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Philadelphia, Baltimore City, and Boston together offer service in more than 5,500 schools to more than 3.7 million children daily. This translates to nearly 631 million meals a year. The coalition aims to ensure that all public school students across the nation receive healthy, nutritious meals through socially responsible practices.
