The Merrymeeting Food Council is a forum for diverse stakeholders in Maine's Merrymeeting Region food system to learn, collaborate, and take action to increase the production and consumption of local, healthy food.

What is a food system?

In the most general, immediate terms, the Merrymeeting Food Council envisions a community that supports local production and provides healthy and nutritious food to everyone. This increase will help provide fresh, healthy food to everyone in our community and protect and enhance natural resources and the economy. We are going to do it by working together – increasing networking and sharing of resources, and minimizing inefficiencies and redundancies.
