Food Purchasing Bill on Move!

COPC is pleased to announce that at long last we have movement on our statewide food procurement bill! HB 1801 (“Concerning Washington state Food Purchasing Policy”) was successfully voted out of committee Thursday night by the House State Government & Tribal Affairs Committee. Next stop is likely a fiscal committee, which will be an important place to truly air out the fiscal implications of this bill. We remain hopeful that our state legislature will see that our state food procurement is one way our government can be more efficient while also providing healthier and local food choices.
