Maine Food Strategy looks to improve Maine's food network
PORTLAND (WGME) -- More can be done to improve Maine's local food network, according to "The Maine Food Strategy."
The report, called "Framework" has ideas for Maine's food system.
It includes creating economic opportunities for workers and businesses and getting food-related businesses active in the community.
The report also includes ideas to sustain and preserve natural resources that support food production, and produce healthy food for Maine people.
Companies like Allagash Brewing are turning to Maine malting facilities to get the malt they need.
The Maine Food Strategy believes that helping communities grow their own food can help create jobs.
