Creating an
Alliance

“We weren’t trying to be a buying group, we were trying to be a market changer.”

In the summer of 2012, representatives from six of the largest school districts in the country began to discuss the idea of a partnership. These districts shared many commonalities: progressive leadership, a commitment to collaboration and incredible purchasing power.

They also shared concerns that the existing school food system was not meeting their needs and a willingness to stimulate that system to obtain healthy, high-quality products for the students they serve. During the initial meeting, members discussed their common ground, potential paths for partnership and opportunities to use their collective voices to create change.
