Food Sovereignty on Isle au Haut

In April 2013, a few residents of the town of Isle au Haut created a petition for a "Local Food and Community Self-Governance Ordinance. The petition was signed by many registered voters to request that the Selectboard call a special town meeting to see if the town would vote to adopt the ordinance. At this meeting, the town adopted the ordinance. Other towns across Maine are now considering similar ordinances.
