• The SWMSS Cooperative Food Purchasing Program provides quality food and food service supply items to schools and other child-based organizations across Montana at a substantial cost savings through high-volume bid purchasing. All food items adhere to the guidelines of the Federal School Lunch Program and food nutritional information. These items are updated by our Advisory Committee and put out to bid twice a year, with up to four deliveries for each order period.
