HB 1135 REQUIRES STATE AGENCIES TO PURCHASE VIRGINIA GROWN FOODS FROM SMALL, LOCAL FARMS BY ADDING A LINK TO THE VIRGINIA GROWN WEBSITE TO DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL SERVICES WEBSITE AND A. AS IT IS NOW, THE CODE PRESENTS LARGE INSTITUTIONS FROM PURCHASING SMALL LOTS OF PRODUCE FROM SMALL LOCAL FARMS. BECAUSE THEY CANNOT SUPPORT THE INSTITUTION.
