RHODE ISLAND'S STATE FOOD STRATEGY

 

Relish Rhody is a State-led, interagency strategy to improve the food system in Rhode Island. In addition to State-level leadership, the food strategy is informed by a robust network of community partners across sub-sectors who are engaged in and energized by this effort. Designed to be an action plan, the strategy takes a holistic view of the state’s food system recognizing the ramifications to public health as well as the economic impact, cultural importance, and environmental necessity of a thriving food system.

Five years into the implementation of the State Food Strategy, Relish Rhody, this report takes inventory of what has been accomplished, where challenges remain, and provides guidance on priorities for the next phase of planning toward a 2030 food vision for Rhode Island.
