Good Food Purchasing for the BPS: Rebekah Williams, Rita Hubbard-Robinson, and Jessica Gilbert on The Public Good

Join us on The Public Good this week! We'll hear from Rebekah Williams, Rita Hubbard-Robinson, and Jessica Gilbert. The three are part of a coalition looking to adopt a Good Food Purchasing Program in the Buffalo Public Schools, the seventh item on this year's Community Agenda. They'll be discussing the work they've done thus far, a resolution they've written in support of a study to examine the benefits of adopting good food in Buffalo, and next steps. 

Rebekah Williams is a community organizer at the Massachusettes Avenue Project. Rita Hubbard-Robinson is CEO of NeuWater & Associates LLC, and Jessica Gilbert is a research associate at Partnership for the Public Good.
