The Good Food Purchasing Program is aspirational, in that it rewards progress and recognizes that change takes time. When a local city adopts the Policy, it includes ongoing monitoring of Good Food purchases and provides the institution and local stakeholders with information to ensure that goals are being met. The Center for Good Food Purchasing provides an annual independent analysis of an institution’s purchasing data and provides individualized, branded materials to institutions that meet the scoring baseline in all five value categories. Scoring requires access to complete line item purchasing records, which institutions request from their vendors and/or distributors. The Center for Good Food Purchasing can also assist with identifying what records are needed and how to obtain them. The Center issues a Good Food Provider verification seal to participating institutions that meet baseline requirements across the five value categories. Learn more about the scoring system here.
