The good food purchasing program was developed by the Los Angeles Food Policy Council in 2012. Shortly thereafter, the program was adopted by the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Unified School District. Now, around 750,000 meals a day are served the city and the schools. Meals that are being sourced and managed in a way that changes the food system to include:

  1. Valuing the workforce
  2. Nutrition
  3. Animal Welfare
  4. Environmental Sustainability
  5. Local Economies
