FINE’s three-year strategic plan identifies the development of “stronger state and federal policies in support of farm to institution,” as one of five core goals. In March of 2018, we launched a farm to institution policy working group to help us define FINE’s role in the policy arena, establish a clear regional farm to institution policy platform, and create a work plan designed to implement that platform. The group is made up of over 20 state food planners and policy advocates in all six New England states as well as regional leaders in food justice, food worker rights and food infrastructure development. We will continue to update this page as we develop our policy platform.

In the meantime, take a look at some of the resources that have guided our research.
