NESAWG convenes a group of food systems organizations and leaders who engage collectively with the Northeast Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NEASDA) at their annual meeting and throughout the year. We can’t engage in person this year, so we are compiling an online publication to show our state Departments of Agriculture how sustainable agriculture and food systems stakeholders use federal, state, and local programs in innovative ways to improve our regional food system. If you have a story about a federal, state, or municipal program or policy, fill out this form to tell us briefly about your effort and we will be in touch to discuss how we can share your story.
