NH Food and Agriculture Strategic Plan

NH Food and Agriculture Strategic Plan
NH Food System Strategic Plan

 

The food system we want in New Hampshire starts with you.


The NH Food Alliance is spearheading the development of the NH Food and Agriculture Strategic Plan and we need your input and participation to create a plan that is both comprehensive and impactful.   

A strategic plan for New Hampshire will align our food community, streamlining collective efforts to obtain funding, pass policies, develop programs, invest in infrastructure, and build networks in support of a thriving, fair, and sustainable local food system in the Granite State.

Below are opportunties to learn more and provide input— explore the details of the planning process, meet the people guiding it, and ensure your voice is heard by participating in a convening or sharing your feedback through our Open Input Form at the button below.

The "What" and "How" of the Plan

The NH Food and Agriculture Strategic Plan will have four main components. These components will be developed with input and feedback from across the New Hampshire food system collected through the participatory engagement plan to form a comprehensive final plan. Find a more detailed version of the process for the plan at the link below!

The "Who" (Meet the Team)

Meet the team holding the center of the process and ensure the result is a plan representative of our food system. Advising that team is an Advisory Committee of food system leaders providing vital feedback on the planning process, as well as engaging their own networks and communities. Meet the team and advisory committee at the link below!
