Welcome to IDOE's 2021 Virtual Food Show!

This show has been created to bring schools and vendors together virtually to showcase USDA Foods items and to assist schools in meeting procurement requirements. Federal regulations require schools receiving Federal School Nutrition funds to follow certain rules for procurement. The regulations can be found in 2 CFR Part 200 (specifically 200.318 – 200.326).


School Food Authorities should retain records for:

  • Vendors used
  • The vendors your school compared prices for within the procurement method your school is required to follow
