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.
Announcing the launch of The Good Food Purchasing Program: Toward a Good Food Future, a multimedia report providing an overview of our shared vision and an introduction to how the Program works. The report also highlights many of the accomplishments and innovations of our partners—institutions, coalitions, policy champions, national partners, good food suppliers, and funders—who have been part of this growing movement over the past eight years.
The Center for Good Food Purchasing is pleased to celebrate Food Day with our recognition of our Good Food Heroes. This year we honor a Good Food Institutional Partner, a Good Food Local Partner, a Good Food Policy Hero, and a Good Food Value Chain Hero.
