MCC reviewed our purchases for the past fiscal year to see which were included within the local requirements set forth by AASHE and determined that currently, three distributors met the criteria. MCC also uses our own honey and herbs, although they are not purchased. The total dollar amount was estimated from the most recent year available. We do not have final numbers for 2019-2020.

Additional documentation to support the submission:

Worked with the culinary purchasing and inventory supervisor to get information from 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. Used data from 2019-2020 because it is closer to our 'normal' year.

Contractor numbers for dining services are not available and not included. I was only able to select no on both to submit.
