Reports and Resources
Work Group Reports
Five work reports, released between November 2010 and June 2011, were developed to support the goals in the charter and as a resource for advocates. Each of the work group reports describes the current state of affairs in Michigan with respect to the particular arena of the food system, provides additional information on the rationale behind and implementation steps towards the agenda priorities introduced in the charter and offers indicators by which to assess progress towards the charter’s goals.
The highlighted links below will open the agenda briefs.
