• The Administrator of Child Nutrition will work with his counterparts at a minimum of two other local school districts to establish a new procurement coop focused exclusively on purchasing locally grown fresh produce. Fruit and vegetables grown in PUSD school gardens will become part of the locally-sourced fresh produce used in taste-testing in classrooms and cafeterias, using the safe handling protocols already established and in use by school districts in Chicago and Ventura, California. Prior to implementation, these procedures will be reviewed and approved by the City of Pasadena Public Health Department.
