The Good Food Purchasing Program transforms the way public institutions purchase food by creating a transparent and equitable food system built on five core values: local economies, health, valued workforce, animal welfare, and environmental sustainability. The Center for Good Food Purchasing provides a comprehensive set of tools, technical support, and verification system to assist institutions in meeting their Program goals and commitments.
The Center for Good Food Purchasing is pleased to celebrate Food Day 2017 with our recognition of our Food Day Heroes. This year we honor a Good Food Institutional Partner, a Good Food Local Partner, and a Good Food Policy Hero.
