New England Food System Policy Project

The goal of this project is to foster better farm and food policies and greater regional collaboration.  It carries out two main activities across six New England states:

1.  Analyze and propose suggestions on key state, regional and federal policy issues:

  • Land access
  • Food production
  • Food processing
  • Aggregation and distribution
  • Access to markets

2.  Explores and fosters creative new collaborations and methods for developing     
     these policies within and across states.  Examples may include:

  • Developing multi-state agreements pertaining to market access or regulations.
  • Bringing state food policy groups together across states for sharing and strategizing.

This project is funded by the Henry P. Kendall Foundation.
