Belfast Co-op presents a free class led by members of Food for Maine's Future:

Local Rules for Local Food.
The Food Sovereignty legislation movement in Maine

We will discuss the principles of food sovereignty, their history and application.  We will discuss and share the work being done in Maine to promote these principles, such as the passage of the food sovereignty law in the Maine legislature in 2017 and the passage of food sovereignty ordinances in 60+ towns and cities around the state.  We will share how this knowledge can be used to transform and protect our local food systems.

This class will be presented by board members of Food for Maine’s Future:
