In 2019, the Partnership developed New England Feeding New England, a multi-year effort to further support community and state food value chains by strengthening regional approaches and responses to issues challenging local and regional producers, supply chain businesses and communities.
PROJECT GOAL: BY 2030, 30% OF FOOD CONSUMED IN NEW ENGLAND IS PRODUCED, HARVESTED, OR CAUGHT WITHIN THE REGION.
New England Feeding New England was launched through a public-private partnership with funding from The John Merck Fund, the Henry P. Kendall Foundation, and the USDA Regional Food System Partnership grant program. Funding for this project was made possible by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service [grant agreement ID 6000016070].
