Local Foods, Local Places Action Plan Lewiston-Auburn
The Local Foods, Local Places (LFLP) Action Plan serves both as a record of a community planning process and a road map for Lewiston-Auburn as it grows and strengthens the local food system and economy. It captures the local food vision of the approximately 80+ attendees to the LFLP events on October 22 and 23, 2019 and crystallizes it into sixteen action steps that — along with numerous individual, business, organizational, and municipal commitments — aim to fulfill the following goals:
- Strengthen access to local food while expanding market opportunities and infrastructure for farm and food businesses.
- Integrate local food and agriculture into city planning and economic development strategies.
- Build food and agriculture as a defining brand for Lewiston-Auburn.
- Increase equitable access, ownership, and preservation of land to grow food in Lewiston-Auburn.
The LFLP Plan was made possible by a Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) technical assistance Local Foods, Local Places (LFLP) Program grant awarded to the St. Mary’s Nutrition Center in 2019.
