The bill establishes a grant program in the department of education
(CDE) to encourage providers that are entitled to federal money for
lunches for students (eligible providers) to purchase food products from
Colorado growers, producers, and processors (Colorado food). Three
separate incentives under the grant program reimburse eligible providers
for the amount of Colorado food that the provider purchased in the
previous school year or award the eligible provider an amount based on
the percentage of Colorado food that the provider purchased in the

previous year.
The bill establishes a separate program in CDE to make a grant to
a nonprofit organization to make grants to entities that aggregate
Colorado food to enhance the sale of Colorado food to schools and to
eligible providers to encourage the purchase of Colorado food. The
nonprofit organization is required to conduct an annual evaluation and
report to CDE.
