Special Edition: Steering Committee Report
The Steering Committee is a hard-working group of volunteers, dedicated to the goal of strengthening Maine’s food economy, now and into the future.
Last January, they began by reviewing past food plans and efforts from Maine and other regions. They wanted to think about what ideas could help Maine, and how they might be implemented in today's changing world.
With the launch of the Consumer Survey Report in May, the committee hosted three briefings across the state during the summer and fielded questions from interested colleagues and consumers.
This fall, members of the Maine Food Strategy Steering Committee have been talking with people across the state to gain broader input on the priorities a statewide strategy should focus on, and ideas for what we can do to support it.
