DELIVERY MINIMUMS (not to be confused with order minimums)
While other food programs require you to spend a high percentage of your annual nutrition program food budgets on their items, our program does not have an order minimum. Please do not confuse this with a delivery minimum. The fuel surcharges and delivery fees many of you are accustomed to seeing on your invoices (for orders placed outside of this program) are included in the price of the items you purchase through this program. Every school district who places an order is guaranteed delivery direct to their school, and every school received the same price. That said, the minimum order amount for an individual delivery (Delivery 1, 2, 3, or 4) is $500, and if they don't meet that minimum, they will be combined to meet that minimum.
I carefully monitor orders that are placed under $2500 to be sure this minimum is met for each individual delivery. How you want individual deliveries combined is up to you, and I work with you to make those adjustments to your Marketplace order. (Adjustments can also include adding a little to your delivery to meet the $500 minimum if you prefer.)
