Massachusetts State Food System Plan

PVPC is assisting the Massachusetts Food Policy Council with the development of a Food Systems Plan for the entire Commonwealth. PVPC is part of a team of planners lead by our colleagues at the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and including Franklin Region Council of Governments (FRCOG) and the Massachusetts Workforce Alliance (MWA). The plan is focusing on state-level policies and programs to increase the amount of food that is produced and consumed in Massachusetts, improve jobs and economic activity in the food system, and reduce food insecurity.
