Wyoming Joins the MCS Food Program

This past year, MCS conducted a new food services RFP; MCS awarded and initiated a new contract with Food Services of America that has saved our schools thousands. Over the summer, our sister cooperative NEW BOCES serving Wyoming approached MCS and requested that their state be permitted to “piggyback” on our contract in providing the opportunity for schools across Wyoming to also receive these dramatic savings.  MCS is pleased to announce that our state Board of Directors recently approved this request, and now MCS will have even more “purchasing power” in negotiating prices for food products and services across our two-state region!


MCS Food Services Program

The MCS Food Services Program is now the largest provider of products and services specifically designed for schools across the great State of Montana!  Now, Wyoming has approached MCS and will be joining the program.  If your school is still not a member of MCS, we encourage you to give us a call and get a quote on how much your school could be saving through our program.
