We are actually open to a 21 day cycle menu. We'll update the RFP with an amendment to disclose that change.
We currently don't have any sites asking for supper, but we wanted to have the price for it just in case. We've seen most vendors keep Lunch and Supper the same.
We currently don't have any sites asking for snack either, but we wanted to have the price for it just in case. If a site does request snack they have to receive either Breakfast, Lunch or Supper with it. We do not offer just snacks alone.
All sites have refrigeration access except for locations: 3820 Santa Rosalia Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90008 and 1000 Artesia Blvd, Gardena, CA 90248
Yes, for shelf stable sites meals can be delivered daily, weekly, bi-weekly, every three weeks or monthly. We will update RFP to reflect that language.
