The SC Department of Education Office of School Food Service and Nutrition came together with a common goal to streamline the purchasing process by collectively working together to obtain high quality products, greater competition, and more competitive pricing. The Alliance is comprised of 78 members consisting of 74 school districts and 4 school programs. This represents 88% of all school districts in the state. The collective buying power is over 90 million dollars.
