Maine Community Foundation Supports GPCOG’s Work on Local Foods

We are pleased¬†to announce that the Maine Community Foundation has recently awarded GPCOG a grant in the amount of $10,000 to help with our Greater Portland Food Production Cluster initiative that was the cornerstone of our successful proposal to be designated as an “Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership (IMCP)” by the Economic Development Administration.¬† The grant will help GPCOG undertake a basic inventory and analysis of the agriculture-related production resources in Northern Maine Counties.

On May 28, 2014, the White House designated the Greater Portland Sustainable Food Production Cluster, led by the GPCOG, as one of 12 Manufacturing Communities in the nation.
