Institutions commit to four things when they adopt a local Good Food Purchasing Policy:

  1. Meet at least the baseline standard in each of the five value categories, as outlined in the Good Food Purchasing Standards.
  2. Establish supply chain transparency to the farm of origin that enables the commitment to be verified and tracked over time.
  3. Incorporate the Good Food Purchasing Standards and reporting requirements into all new RFPs and contracts.
  4. Participate in the Center’s Program to verify compliance, measure progress, and celebrate success.
