The Legal Food Hub supports farmers, food entrepreneurs, and farm and food organizations who are committed to growing and using food more sustainably by connecting them with free legal services. Since its inception in 2014, the Legal Food Hub has handled over 1,000 cases and has expanded its operation to every New England state. The Hub has also leveraged more than $4.76 million in pro bono legal services, drawing on a network of volunteer lawyers from 158 law firms across the region. The Hub also offers free educational materials to help all farmers, food entrepreneurs, and food and farm organizations in the region succeed, including a comprehensive online legal resource library and free webinars on a range of legal topics.

The Legal Food Hub is a project of Conservation Law Foundation (CLF). CLF believes that a thriving New England means a thriving local food system—the region’s environment, climate, and economy depend on it.
