Check out the FPAC Food System Exchange to Give or Get Resources
Looking to give or get resources across the food system during COVID-19? The Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council (FPAC) created this easy-to-use tool to exchange resources. Though sparked by the COVID-19 global pandemic, it is our understanding that the widespread impacts of the virus are symptoms of larger systems of oppression. During and beyond the pandemic, we will continue to connect Philadelphians and our local government to create a more just food system —where all people have the power to access, own and control our food, land and labor. Check out the FPAC Food System Exchange to request or offer support!
FPAC Releases Guide to Fair Labor for Good Food Businesses
The Workforce & Economic Development subcommittee is pleased to announce the publication of the Guide to Fair Labor for Good Food Businesses, a manual the subcommittee created to help employers contribute to building a stronger regional economy and a just food system. The guide contains information about free and low-cost resources that support fair wages and scheduling, improved health and safety, better employee benefits, fostering an open workplace culture, and selecting fair suppliers and subcontractors. We see these measures as a first step toward changing the culture of the food industry and helping more Philadelphians realize their career potential in the food sector. Check it out here!
Hosting an event? The 2018 Good Food Caterer Guide has got you covered!
In August, the Good Food Procurement subcommittee released the 2018 Good Food Caterer Guide. 16 more caterers were added to the list! See if your favorite caterer made the cut.
Whether its for a working lunch or community event, use the guide to find some ‘good food’ for your guests! Want to help promote the guide? Share the printable booklet with your friends and officemates.
The Good Food Procurement Subcommittee developed the guide to help consumers find businesses offering food that meets at least two of the four ‘good food’ values: healthy, fair, sustainably-sourced, and locally-owned.
