On March 13, 2017, the Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC) and the Center for Agriculture and Food Systems (CAFS) at Vermont Law School released the Blueprint for a National Food Strategy. The report marks the culmination of an 18-month collaborative project to conduct an in-depth examination of the potential for creating a national food strategy in the United States. The report finds that the United States could reap significant rewards from a strategy — a strategy provides a rare opportunity to account for the totality of the U.S. food system and identify concrete goals and action steps for strengthening this vital system overall. In addition, the report identifies policy mechanisms to aid the United States in the creation of such a strategy. Below is media coverage of the report.
