FARM Illinois

Illinois and Chicago have the potential be a regional, national, and global hub for food and agriculture innovation and addressing global and local food insecurity by 2025. The Food and Agriculture RoadMap for Illinois (FARM Illinois) outlines strategic recommendations that will set the national and international standard for how the food and agriculture system can improve health, contribute to the economy, create jobs, employ new technologies, preserve the environment, adapt to a changing climate, and help underserved communities. Lead funding for the initiative was provided by the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust, in collaboration with the Illinois Farm Bureau and with additional financial support from organizations and businesses around the state.
