Board Agenda page 382

Approval of Award of Bid No. 1819-12, Fresh Produce (Fruit and Vegetables) Products and Services Category 1 to Better Life Organics dba Charlie’s Produce. Category 1 (Organic Produce) was previously awarded to Gold Star Foods at the Board meeting held on April 25, 2019. Gold Star Foods has since been deemed non-responsible and unable to perform according to the terms of Category 1 of Bid No. 1819-12. The two separate bid categories were separately awarded to the lowest responsive, responsible bidder. The initial contract term is April 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 and may be extended with Board approval. The proposed term for the award of Category 1 of Bid No. 1819-12 (Organic Produce) is June 15, 2019 through June 30, 2020. Annual expenditures under this contract are estimated to be $700,000 funded by the cafeteria fund; however, will vary dependent on District needs and availability of funds.
