Maine Producers and Consumers Attend Food Summit 

The Wells Conference Center in Orono was packed on Friday.

Mainers interested in the state’s food system gathered for the 2013 Maine Food Summit.

Keynote speakers discussed the impact of producing and buying local food.

Attendees also participated in a question and answer session with the Maine Food Strategy Directors.

“Folks are interested in where their food comes in, how it’s produced and we think that’s a really great opportunity economically for the State but it’s also an opportunity to look at the other sectors that are impacted by food systems,” said Tanya Swain, a Co-director for Maine Food Strategy

The group also introduced their summary of legislative activity they hope to implement in the future.
