NarrativeHawaii has a statewide school district managed by the state Dept. of Education that must deal with procurement issues impacted by the fact that almost everything must be shipped in from the mainland. Local procurement opportunities of fresh produce are also minimal despite the year-round tropical climate because of limited supply and because most of the state’s farmers grow high-end gourmet products impractical for the school market. The district is trying to emphasize scratch cooking in its 196 prep kitchens despite recent budget cuts.
