The Massachusetts Food Plan! 

Help us put one together!

What is the MA Food Plan? 

It is both an assessment of and a plan to improve our food system – covering issues such as farming, ending hunger, getting more access to healthy/fresh foods in our communities, composting, improving our soils, processing and distributing food grown in Massachusetts, labor issues regarding the food industry, etc.  
Do you eat food? Grow food? Sell food? Cook food?

Then we need your voice!  

What is working well for Worcester and Central Massachusetts?

What are our issues?

What do we need for support to make change?

Please RSVP so we can be prepared with enough materials and refreshments! RSVP to Liz Sheehan Castro at hungerfreeworcester@gmail.com.
