We are a catalyst for food system change.
Food Connects’ strategic plan calls for us to be a catalyst for food system change in New England and beyond. What does this mean?
We believe that transforming the food system requires the direct engagement and empowerment of all of us. We work to be a leader in strengthening the movement for community-based food systems throughout New England, building healthy families, thriving farms, and connected communities as we progress.
Our programs work together to have a lasting impact. Our Food Hub opens new markets for farmers, helps ensure that farmland will be here for generations to come, and makes purchasing local food easy for wholesale buyers in our community and beyond.
Our Farm to School program develops lifelong healthy eating habits in children, grows engagement in the local food system and supports cafeterias, classrooms and the greater community in working together to have a collective impact.
Through our efforts we engage with: School Communities, Farmers & Food Producers, Wholesale Buyers, Community Members, and State and Local Leaders.
