Take Our Survey

Are you:

  • a college or hospital dining director who’s interested in bringing more Maine-sourced food and ingredients onto your food service line?
  • a chef or restaurant owner who wants uses Maine-sourced ingredients or wants to feature more local ingredients on your menu?
  • a school kitchen manager who wants to feature local food on a regular basis or for special occasions?
  • a distributor or supermarket forager interested in Maine-sourced food?

You can help us learn about your requirements and preferences for Maine-sourced food and ingredients by completing our survey.

Everyone who finishes the survey can download the 56-page PDF Wholesale and Distributor Buyers Guide to Maine Food.

Your confidential information will help the Growing Opportunities for Maine-Sourced Food consortium understand the viability of a food hub to serve wholesale buyers in the greater Bangor area market.

A food hub, under this effort, aggregates harvest from local farms and distributes to supermarkets, restaurants, colleges, and hospitals where 80% of family food budgets are spent.
