2019 K-12 Power Players

Here are the country’s 25 largest school districts’ meal programs.

The 2019 edition of FM’s K-12 Power Players listing tabulates and profiles the school meal programs at the 25 largest public K-12 school districts in the United States as ranked by current enrollment. In addition to basic factual information, we have included brief notes for each on recent foodservice-related initiatives or major developments that might have affected each particular program.

While these 25 districts collectively constitute a small fraction of the entire school foodservice market, they do have outsized influence in areas like product development and vendor priorities because of their purchasing power, so their activities, initiatives and areas of emphasis have significance for the entire school food community.
