DHHS Food Distribution
Calculating Cost of USDA Donated Foods
USDA foods are stored and delivered by a contractor. If you choose to pick up your order at the state contracted warehouse, only the storage rate would apply. The following rates are in effect and will be billed to you by DHHS. These rates apply to all locations.
Storage and Delivery $4.25/case
Donated Foods Value and Processing Fees:
After logging on to CNPweb under the ‘Reports’ tab, run the report titled “Product Cost Per Serving”. This report shows the cost per serving (donated foods value for USDA items and processing fees for end products) but does not take distribution charges into account since we don’t know if you will be picking up the items, having them delivered or in the case of USDA items, having them delivered to your own warehouse directly from USDA vendors (1/4 truck load minimum).
