What do Mainers think about local food and seafood? What barriers prevent them from buying more? And what can municipal leaders do to make local food more accessible to residents? Join us as the Maine Food Strategy presents findings of the 2014 Consumer Survey Report, a statewide survey recently released detailing the food-purchasing habits of nearly 600 Mainers.
Let’s explore the opportunities and challenges of our current food system in meeting the demands of what Mainers are looking for from their food.

ABOUT THE MAINE FOOD STRATEGY
The Maine Food Strategy is an initiative to create a broader and more strongly connected network of organizations and individuals contributing to the food system in Maine. The initiative is convening a statewide participatory process that will identify and advance shared goals to support a robust food economy and to look at other food-related issues in the state. The Maine Food Strategy’s overarching goal is creating an action plan that will strengthen Maine’s farming, fishing and food economy and support Maine residents’ ability to access healthy food.
