Merrymeeting Food Council Reports
Food, Farms, and Fisheries Assessment (FFFA)
Initiated during the summer of 2015, the FFFA creates an inventory and map of the current state of local foods in the communities surrounding Merrymeeting Bay. This assessment identifies all aspects of the local food system, including:
Farmer/fishermen-to-consumer sale locations (farmers' markets, CSAs, etc.)
Processing and distribution resources
Food banks and/or pantries
Waste management resources
