Institutions commit to four things when they adopt a local Good Food Purchasing Policy:
- Meet at least the baseline standard in each of the five value categories, as outlined in the Good Food Purchasing Standards.
- Establish supply chain transparency to the farm of origin that enables the commitment to be verified and tracked over time.
- Incorporate the Good Food Purchasing Standards and reporting requirements into all new RFPs and contracts.
- Participate in the Center’s Program to verify compliance, measure progress, and celebrate success.
