Welcome to the Michigan Good Food website!
Michigan Good Food is a policy initiative centered on the Michigan Good Food Charter. The initiative aims to promote policy changes that will advance "good food" in Michigan - food that is healthy, green, fair and affordable.
The Michigan Good Food Charter presents a vision for Michigan’s food and agriculture system and outlines 25 agenda priorities for the next 10 years.
The Process Behind the Michigan Good Food Charter
From September 2009 through May 2010, work groups examined our current situation and explored future opportunities to advance Good Food in Michigan in five arenas:
Each group presented an action agenda and invited discussion and feedback at the Michigan Good Food Summit on February 25th, 2010.
The first of its kind, the summit assembled food system stakeholders from across the state to shape a plan that will propel Michigan towards food production, distribution and marketing to support equity, sustainability and thriving economies. The feedback gathered at the summit and in the months that followed helped to shape the Michigan Good Food Charter.
