Together, they answer the important question: How can we work together to advance a food system that allows all of our communities to obtain the resources, nourishment, and support they need to thrive?
Through funding, programs, and state policy, we are asking state decision makers to support the following priorities:
- Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) producers, distributors, and organizations
- Beginning farmers and farmland transition
- Small-scale, diversified, and sustainable farms
- Food sovereignty, food security, and health for all communities
- Climate mitigation, resilience, and adaptation led by those on frontlines
- A robust and thriving Northeast seafood sector
