Local Farmers Are Great for Our Schools
The Oxford School District Child Nutrition Department, through with help from their Good Food for Oxford Schools (GFOS) program strives to provide fresh, high-quality produce to our students and to educate children about food and agriculture. We will source a variety of local (within 150 miles of Oxford, MS) produce items for the 2016-2017 school year and provide opportunities for students to get to know our farmer suppliers. Oxford School District is particularly looking to partner with small-scale, beginning, family, minority, and/or immigrant-owned farms in the north Mississippi region.
If you are interested in selling your locally grown produce items to our school cafeterias, please complete this Request for Information (RFI) OSD Farmer RFI or contact:
