JOIN THE MOVEMENT
“We didn’t have to invent the purchasing process from scratch. We could have assistance from a tried-and-true process. At the same time, develop our own goals and processes that would reflect our values in our community.”
Edwin Marty, Food Policy Manager, City of Austin
“Our contracts are an expression of our values. We intend to use the contracting process to leverage important changes in the agricultural industry.”
