What Drives Our Work

The NW Mi Food and Farming Network is driven by a clear set of directives.

Our Goal:

Build Northwest Michigan’s agricultural future by identifying areas of need throughout the region’s food system and coordinating action to address them.

Our Strength:

Facilitating synergies and communicating among the many people and organizations already at work changing our regional food system.

Our five action areas are:

Local Food Sales: Increasing Direct and Indirect Sales

Farm to Institution: Institutionalizing Local Procurement

Agribusiness Generation: Building Local Production and Processing Capacity

Food Access: Healthful Food for All

Farmland Resources: Preservation of Farming and Farmland
These action areas are addressed by volunteer task forces assigned to influence food system change by creating new or supporting existing projects in the community.

We were originally inspired by the goals and objectives of the Michigan Good Food Charter. To find out more about the charter and sign-on to its resolution, click here.
