Thank you for supporting the Maine Food Strategy!
There are many ways you can help us in moving forward this collaborative effort to strengthen Maine’s food system:
Your donation will go towards creating, developing, and sustaining connections and relationships with members of Maine’s food system. Visit our “Network” page more information on how the MFS uses network-building to create change.
2. Share your voice
The Maine Food Strategy has developed distinct goal areas with work groups that meet to discuss priorities and barriers to solving food system problems. Visit the Healthy Food for All, Economic Development, Healthy Maine Environment, and Vibrant Communities pages to contact and learn more.
3. Get involved!
The Maine Food Strategy holds briefing sessions and speaking events to solicit more input in how to address food system issues. Follow us on Facebook, subscribe to the newsletter, or check up on the website calendar for event information. You can also email us directly for specific questions and comments.

Whether or not you’ve lent your time to MFS efforts, you can become a champion of food systems issues in your own town or within your own networks.
