The Food and Agricultural Roadmap for Illinois (FARM Illinois)

The Food and Agriculture RoadMap for Illinois (FARM Illinois) was established to develop a comprehensive strategic plan that enables Illinois and the Chicago region to become the leading global hub for food and agriculture system innovation, and ensure their leadership in sustainably meeting the 21st-century challenge of global and local food security.

With lead funding provided by the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust, FARM Illinois convened more than 150 stakeholders and experts representing different aspects of the food and agriculture system—from policy to advocacy, research to industry, and production to consumption—to contribute to this strategic roadmap toward food security and agricultural innovation.
