Steering Committee Update
Over the past year, information from a review of state food plans and input from numerous public events and outreach has coalesced around four broad goal areas for Maine’s food system: economic development; the adaptability of the food system to changing environmental conditions; the ability of the food system to feed Maine people; and the important connection between food production and the heritage and vitality of Maine communities.
Earlier this year, people from across the state and sectors offered input on these areas, and their ideas for strengthening Maine’s food system. Dozens of suggestions for specific activities, resources and programs have been proposed over the past year and Steering Committee members are asking other organizations and individuals to look more closely at specific ideas and next steps.
