The research captured in this report sought to illuminate the dynamics that influence the use of fruits and vegetables in K-12 settings and the nature of supply chains that currently provide produce to selected large urban school districts in the Upper Midwest. This analysis and related market research then provided the platform to identify strategies that could expand these districts’ access to affordable, quality produce. We also identified opportunities for investment (particularly through program-related investments) that can address key gaps in produce supply chains that serve these districts.
