Massachusetts Local Food Action Plan

The Massachusetts Local Food Action Plan was accepted by the MA Food Policy Council on December 10, 2015. The plan is designed to increase production, sales and consumption of Massachusetts-grown food; create jobs and improve wages in food and farming; protect the land and water needed to produce food, while maximizing the environmental benefits of agriculture and fishing; ensure food safety; and reduce waste, hunger and food insecurity, while making available more fresh, healthy food to everyone who lives here. The plan offers recommendations for the public and private sectors to see these goals through to fruition.
