Food Policy



Food Policy


The Maine Food Policy Work Group

The Maine Food Policy Work Group originated in 2019 with Coastal Enterprises, Inc.,
Maine Farm To School & Institution Networks and Maine’s Network of Community Food
Councils and has since grown to include many other individuals and groups. This has
created a forum where groups who are working on state level policies can share
education and information related to food system advocacy.

The Work Group identifies and tracks food bills moving through the Maine Legislature.
Our meetings include educational sharing by advocates from groups who are working
on key initiatives. This helps enlighten and demystify the legislative process. This helps
citizens navigate the process so they can add their views and voices as food policy
gets created.

The Work Group has launched an organizing initiative to create a broad based coalition
in support of climate resilient, just food policy in Maine. Together we want to strengthen
public support for Maine’s food movement.

This website aims to supplement the weekly Maine Food Policy News to make the legislative process more accessible so that concerned citizens can identify and follow Bills, and take action through testimony, communication with Legislators, and education and advocating for others to also support (or oppose) key initiatives.  

Together we can build a Maine food system that fosters the wellbeing of people, communities and our planet. Good Food Policy can catalyze public support for a thriving Maine food system that is equitable, just, and regenerative.  This site aims to give you tools to help create this vision.

We're still building this site, so please check back soon.
