Serving Michigan Students Through Inspired Food Systems

Healthy children build healthy communities, and healthy meals build healthy kids. SPARC, The School Purchasing and Resource Consortium, was developed by food service directors who joined together as a team. That means we understand the issues you face and are uniquely suited to helping you provide the freshest, healthiest and tastiest meals for your students, at the best possible value. Together, we can enhance our buying power, keep food costs under control and maximize our USDA entitlement dollars.
