Our goals for the New Hampshire Food System

  • People understand that their local food choices support thriving businesses, healthy communities, and vibrant working landscapes.
  • Everyone has access to healthy, affordable, and culturally diverse food.
  • Local farm, fisheries, and food businesses are profitable and rewarding to all involved.
  • Policy, regulation, and infrastructure supports long-term local and regional food production, distribution, and marketing.
  • The ecosystems and resources that sustain a robust food system are conserved and enhanced.


The image below illustrates basic food system activities from farm and sea to table to compost; the producers, entrepreneurs, institutions, people, initiatives, and agencies that support these processes make up the NH Food Alliance.
