The Sustainable Food Purchasing Policy Project helps educational, health care and other institutional and commercial food buyers develop purchasing policies that support social and environmental responsibility in agriculture and the food industry.
The project has three primary objectives:
collect and share sample food purchasing policies addressing a range of
social and environmental concerns, as well as related RFP and contract
outline sustainable food purchasing policy options, the implications of
these policies for institutions, and their potential impacts on the
share insight on the policy development process, and on the
implementation and evaluation of sustainable food purchasing policies,
from the representatives and stakeholders of institutions that have gone
down this road.
