The Food Chain Workers Alliance and other local and national groups are working through the Good Food Purchasing Program (GFPP) to help public institutions source more just, healthy, humane and sustainable food. GFPP is a multi-sector coalition supporting a food system reflecting five values: nutrition, worker justice, local economies, environmental sustainability, and animal welfare. GFPP provides a comprehensive food procurement tool for cities, school systems and other public bodies to invest in food meeting these values. This session covers the history, scope and structure of GFPP and the status of current campaigns in NYC and other NorthEast cities.
