In this exciting meeting, we will cover a lot of ground, from farms to schools and in between! More details are to come, but here’s a taste of the meeting agenda:
- Michigan Farm to School Updates with Jaime Malnar, Michigan Department of Education, Colleen Matts, MSU Center for Regional Food Systems, and Nathan Medina, Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities, including:
- Local Food Purchasing at Michigan Schools survey results (2019-2020) and
- 10 Cents a Meal evaluation results from previous years, what to expect for 2020-2021, and advocacy efforts for the year ahead
- Expanding on-farm conservation by expanding markets, education, and engagement with Tom Zimnicki, Michigan Environmental Council
Then, we will celebrate MFIN’s accomplishments through 2020, by the numbers, and look forward to 2021! This virtual presentation will be held on Zoom.
