Building a Healthier Community Through Food Security.
Formally known as the Southeastern MA Food Security Network, the Marion Institute Southcoast Food Policy Council’s mission is to connect, convene, and advocate for local food producers, consumers, and community leaders who seek policy and systems that strengthen our regional food system, improve community health, and eliminate food insecurity.
Take the Southeast MA Food Hub Survey by Friday, June 5!
This survey is part of an information gathering process to determine current supply chain and market challenges food producers and buyers face, as well as potential solutions a food hub based in Southeastern Massachusetts could provide to the community. We appreciate your participation in this research. The survey takes less than 5 minutes but the data is invaluable in helping us to shape our future efforts. Thank you for your input!
