Partner: Eat Local Foods Coalition of Maine

“We support Sustain Southern Maine because building a vibrant local food system is vital for creating a thriving local economy, healthy and food-secure citizens and a resilient state that is not dependent on fossil fuels to feed its citizens,” says Lisa Fernandes, co-coordinator of the Eat Local Foods Coalition.

The Eat Local Foods Coalition’s mission is putting more Maine food on more Maine tables more often. Doing so will result in economic benefits, greater local food security and sovereignty, enhanced health and nutrition and vibrant local food culture.

ELFC is a collaborative coalition of organizations, agencies, businesses and individuals interested in creating a shift towards a locally-based food system that is economically vibrant, environmentally sustainable, and healthy.
