The Maine Food Strategy Steering Committee is a diverse group of stakeholders from around the state. Initiated in December of 2013, the Steering Committee is responsible for guiding the direction of the Maine Food Strategy and ensuring it stays true to its values.  Yellow Wood worked with the Maine Food Strategy Steering Committee using You Get What You Measure® to identify working goals and strategic priorities for the development of the Maine Food Strategy.  The results of this work will help the Steering Committee develop working groups and focus their attention for a set of strategies to be deployed in the action plan.
