Governor Mills has signed into law legislation aimed at ending hunger by 2030.

The law requires state agencies to work together on a comprehensive plan to make sure all Mainers have access to nutritious food.

State officials will report back to the legislature with an initial plan by next February.

Officials say 37% of Mainers struggling with food insecurity do not qualify for public assistance.
