As part of a Metro Health initiative to create a healthy workplace, the Healthy Food and Beverage Procurement Administrative Directive 11.1 goes into full effect on August 15, 2019.
AD 11.1 (PDF, 246KB) and the accompanying Food Service Guidelines (PDF, 129KB) can be accessed on the COSAweb.
Check out the Employee Implementation Guide (PDF, 27MB). This guide was developed to help assist COSA employees in purchasing foods and beverages using City funds. The information provided in this guide will help you better understand and apply the Healthy Food and Beverage Procurement Policy and City of San Antonio Food Service Guidelines. The guide includes sample breakfast, lunch, and snack menus from varying cuisines, FAQ's, a helpful Checklist for Ordering Meals, as well as some cost-saving tips.
A separate Checklist (PDF, 465KB) is still available to help you follow the AD.
