What We Believe

Our Values

The Food Solutions New England network is guided by these values:

Democratic Empowerment:

We celebrate and value the political power of the people. A just food system depends on the active participation of all people in New England.

Racial Equity and Dignity for All: 

We believe that racism must be undone in order to achieve an equitable food system. Fairness, inclusiveness, and solidarity must guide our food future.


We know that our food system is interconnected with the health of our environment, our democracy, and our economy. Sustainability commits us to ensure well-being for people and the planet now and in the future.


We consider trust to be the lifeblood of collaboration and collaboration is key to our long-term success. We are committed to building trust across diverse people, organizations, networks, and communities to support a thriving food system.
