We need a few good lawyers to join
New England’s local food movement.
90% of New England’s food is imported from other regions, because our food system is set up to support industrial agriculture at the expense of local farmers and food entrepreneurs.
For our health, our climate, and our economy, we need to change that.
We’re building a network of lawyers volunteering their time to help build a sustainable and resilient local food system in New England.
Interested in volunteering pro bono for this cause? Fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch with more details about how you can help.
Yes, tell me more about volunteer opportunities:
What our legal volunteers have to say:
“It is a privilege to work with the Legal Food Hub to provide farmers and food entrepreneurs pro bono legal services and do my part to support Maine’s dynamic food system.”
– Patrick Lyons, Eaton Peabody
“I volunteer with the Legal Food Hub because I feel like it helps me be the change we need to combat climate change. Local food comes from local farmers, and local farmers need access to legal services.”
– Amy Manzelli, BCM Environmental & Land Law PLLC
“W don’t do work with LFH participants just because it is a professional obligation. We do it because we know that helping farmers and food businesses makes the agricultural ecosystem stronger – and that’s a good thing for all of us.”
David McConnell, Perkins Thomspon
