The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR), the Massachusetts Food Policy Council, and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, in collaboration with the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, Franklin Regional Council of Governments, and Massachusetts Workforce Alliance, are collaborating on a Massachusetts Food System Plan to be publicly released on October 23, 2015. MPHA has been actively involved in this process and we look forward to being part of the release. The plan will be unveiled at the State House at the 2d floor Grand staircase and Nurses Hall from 9:30-11:30 am. “Let’s Talk about Food” discussion will be held at the Boston Public Market Kitchen from 12-1pm. The food plan will also be available for comment at www.mafoodplan.org.
