There is all kinds of assistance already out there for the single mothers that you speak of, and they take full advantage of it. I've heard of single mothers getting so much financial aid to go back to school that they have money left over. Then they drop out because hey, they didn't have to pay for it. Single moms who get so much EITC on their tax returns that they can go out and get…

Never heard of such a thing. Cities and counties along with townships submit their request, then CMS uses that total for their RFP. If a supplier cannot meet that total then I would guess some could be left off the RFP total, but have never heard of that. The other comment states " bids range from $70 to $140 per ton" so why is Quincy paying $95 per ton? Still I have never heard of CMS cutting off…

West Liberty Foods acquires Quantum Foods

1 month ago From qctimes.com

From From qctimes.com:

West Liberty Foods LLC announced Monday that it has closed on the purchase of substantially all assets of Bolingbrook, Ill.-based Quantum Foods.

West Liberty Foods expects to begin meat processing operations at the Bolingbrook location within the next 30 days, officials said in a news release.

“This is an exciting step forward for West Liberty Foods,” said Ed Garrett, president and CEO. “This acquisition will enhance our offerings and benefit our customers, employees and owners. In addition, we will be able to bring back jobs lost when Quantum Foods shut down its business.”

According to its website, Quantum Foods was founded in 1990 as a hand-cut butchering operation servicing national restaurants and retail markets. In 2000, it began selling products to the military. As military operations expanded, so did Quantum Foods’ business. Quantum was a producer of value-added protein products such as portion-controlled, ready-to-cook and value-added fully cooked foods made from beef, poultry and pork.

According to meatpoultry.com, until Monday's announcement, a webcast auction was scheduled for today through Thursday for assets up for bid, including a 220,000-square-foot production facility, an 80,000-square-foot culinary facility and a 250,000-square-foot cold-storage distribution center.
