FMF DIRECTOR ELECTED TO NATIONAL FARM COMMITTEE

St.Peter Joins NFFC Executive Committee

Sedgwick – Bob St.Peter, co-founder and director of Food for Maine’s Future, was recently elected to the Executive Committee of the National Family Farm Coalition (NFFC). The election took place at the NFFC’s winter meeting in Washington, DC at the end of January. The term is for one year.

“It’s an honor and privilege to work alongside these true heroes,” says St.Peter. “Working with the NFFC I am constantly reminded of how important and valuable the contributions of family farmers and fisherman are to rural communities.”

The National Family Farm Coalition is based in Washington DC and is comprised of 25 farm and fishing groups from 32 states, including Food for Maine’s Future. NFFC serves as a national link for grassroots organizations working on family farm issues, including credit, trade, and farm and food policy. Through the NFFC, these organizations collaborate regionally on nation-wide campaigns making the most of every group’s experience, resources, and impact. For more information visit www.nffc.net.
