In 2018, the Good Food Buffalo Coalition was launched to bring the Good Food Purchasing Program to Western New York because children and all people deserve access to healthy food, and food that values workers, animals, and the environment, while lifting local communities out of poverty.
Our member organizations work collaboratively in a grassroots coalition representing the six values of the Good Food Purchasing Program. Together, we educate the community about the food system, increase awareness about impacts and outputs, as well as economic opportunities of the food system, and we advocate that public institutions in Buffalo and Erie County operate in consideration of public values to ensure that those institutions are accountable to the needs of the people and places they work for and around.
We currently have 32 member organizations (listed below). Organizations can join our coalition by completing this online form.
