MA Food Plan Listening Session
Wednesday, April 15th from 2-4pm, Mill 1 in Open Square, 4 Open Square Way, Holyoke, MA
Massachusetts has a rich and diverse food system – from varied agriculture, to innovative food processing facilities, to initiatives that improve the health and affordability of food in our communities. The Massachusetts Food Policy Council has initiated a process to craft a statewide Food System Plan build a strong, robust food system where there is less hunger, more access to local and healthy foods, where there are improved job and business opportunities, and where food system development is ecologically sustainable.
We want to hear from you! Join us after lunch and weigh in on what’s happening on farms, in food processing, with community food organizations, and in fisheries.
- What are you doing really well?
- What are the major challenges in your area?
- What do you see as the most important ways to improve our food system?
Your input is important for us to better understand the major strengths and obstacles in this region and to develop a well-informed plan for the Massachusetts food system.
