Many of us are concerned about our food system. From unsustainable farming
techniques to food deserts to widespread poor nutrition, the problems can
be overwhelming. The good news is that *Food Solutions New England (FSNE)
has created a Vision for a regional food system that is sustainable,
equitable and resilient*. And, we all have a part to play in bringing this
Vision to life.

*What contribution will you or your organization make?* Join us on August 17 to
learn more and discuss how we can all create sustainable and equitable food
system for New England. RSVP here

In Fall 2014 the JP Forum hosted "Can New England Feed Itself" in order to
explore the Vision with folks from the FSNE network. Wednesday's
conversation will update us on the pathway toward realizing the Vision. Click
