Thank you for gathering!

The 2024 NH Food System Statewide Gathering was held May 17 at The Barn on the Pemi in Plymouth, New Hampshire.

The NH Food System Statewide Gathering is an annual event hosted by the NH Food Alliance that brings together individuals, businesses, and organizations from across sectors who are dedicated to growing an improved local food system that works for all in the Granite State.This year’s gathering was defined by a new level of energy, engagement, and diversity in its participants. There were joyful reunions, new connections made, thoughtful questions and discussions during breakout sessions, and by the end of the day,  a heightened awareness about the incredible food systems change happening in every corner of New Hampshire.

To get a full sense of the day and to access resources from each breakout session and the Lightning Round presentations, check out the the gathering program linked below. If you're interested checking out our gathering photo album, head here (photos by Oak and Elm Photography).

And, we highly recommend checking out the "I Highly Recommend" farm, fish, and food business map! As an entry for the Gathering Raffle, participants were asked to recommend a farm, restaurant, fishery, co-op, or other food business that they love. Check out the map linked below and get inspired to eat local!
