Here in Maine, we are living in a time of enormous opportunity.  We can leverage our strengths to enhance our economy and create jobs while we simultaneously help to improve food security and health for all Mainers.

Benefits

Interest in the health and economic benefits of locally produced foods is growing – both for our own consumption in Maine as well as for distribution further afield.

Timing

Now is the time to link all our good work together, grow the Maine economy around food, agriculture and fisheries, and enhance access to Maine foods and employment opportunities for Maine citizens. The initiative is open to everyone and participants will collaboratively identify shared goals and strategies that support these opportunities.

What makes The Maine Food Strategy different?
