Albany County, NY: Local Food Purchasing Policy Resolution

In 2009, the Albany County Legislature unanimously passed a resolution tasking the Albany County Purchasing Agent to purchase local food products for Albany County Residential Healthcare Facilities and the Albany County Correctional Facility.  The target for food products to be purchased from local sources is to be set with the assistance of the New York State Commissioner of Agriculture.  The Albany County Legislature cited economic, environmental and health concerns as rationale for this policy.
