Durango 9-R Student Nutrition Services is committed to enhancing our students' education by providing nutritious and delicious meals with pride. Our successful Farm to School program helps support our area's farmers while fulfilling our goal to serve fresh, wholesome school meals.
How it works: The District establishes contracts with local farmers who then provide fruits, vegetables, and beef. When available, our students are eating locally grown mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, zucchini, squash, carrots, herbs, onions, cherry tomatoes, and radishes.
Farmers: The 2021-2022 Invitation for Bid is due by 2:00 pm on April 21, 2021.
