Cook County Good Food Purchasing Program Update

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cook County became the third local government in the U.S. to approve a resolution promoting the Good Food Purchasing Program (GFPP) in May 2018. GFPP provides a metric-based framework for food procurement that advances a healthy, sustainable, and equitable food system through five core value categories: Local Food Economies, Valued Workforce, Environmental Sustainability, Animal Welfare and Nutrition. Cook County’s resolution emphasizes purchasing food from business owners of color or from low to moderate-income communities to build economic sustainability for all. Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) is leading Good Food Purchasing Program implementation throughout Cook County departments and agencies with the support of the Chicago Food Policy Action Council and the Cook County Good Food Task Force. The panel will discuss progress with implementation of Cook County Good Food Purchasing Program and opportunities moving forward.
