County awards food service bids for 2013-'14 school year

The Cumberland County Finance Committee approved food and beverage bids and janitorial supplies for the 2013-'14 school year for the school nutrition program during its meeting last week.

Carmin Lynch, 9th District commissioner, asked if the funds were coming from this year's budget, or the 2013-'14 school year budget.

Kathy Hamby school nutrition supervisor said, "They are from next school year's budget, but are not ordered until the last week of July."

Lynch said he wondered because the county would be operating on a continuing budget at that point.

However, as long as the funds do not exceed last year's appropriations, the items can be purchased.

Cumberland County Director of Schools Aarona VanWinkle said only a one-week supply is ordered at that time.

Main food and non-supplies were awarded to Institutional Wholesale Company, Inc. at a low bid of $846,301.53. Gordon Food Services was the next lowest bidder at $850,696.70.

Fresh produce was awarded to J.R. Gaw Produce Co. Inc. for a low bid of $89,239.60. Palmer Food Service was the next lowest bidder at $94,840.70.

Chemicals and Janitorial Supplies was awarded to Institutional Wholesale, Inc. at a low bid of $53,487.14. Gordon Food Service was next bidder at $69,181.85.

Milk and Milk products was awarded to Mayfield Dairy Farms, LLC, at a low bid of $221,033.54. Borden Dairy Company of Kentucky was next at $222,413.11.

Ice Cream was also awarded to Mayfield Dairy Farms, LLC, at a low bid of $9,716.15. Mayfield was the sole bidder.

Dinnerware was awarded to Calico Industries at a bid of $16,675.86. Calico was the sole bidder.

Waste Pickup and disposal was awarded to Cumberland Waste Disposal at a bid of $68,660. CWD was the sole bidder.

Hamby explained there is not one company that can supply all of the beverage products so it is divided up into individual products and recommended to be awarded to the low bidder in those areas.

Beverage bid awards went to Institutional Wholesale Company, Inc. for flavored beverages and flavored waters; Gordon Food Service for lemonade, cappuccino, fruit juices and vegetable juices and mixes; Coca-Cola for waters and sports drinks and various carbonated drinks; and Borden Dairy Company of Kentucky for orange juices.

Hamby recommended all of the previous bids be approved.

The bids were unanimously approved after VanWinkle made a motion.

Committee member Johnny Presley, 3rd District commissioner, did not attend the meeting.
