Nearly 350 people came together from all corners of the state at the 2012 Michigan Good Food Summit on June 14 at the Lansing Center. People in attendance included students, farmers, food business owners, health professionals, educators, non-profit representatives and community advocates. More than 85 attendees were part of a local food policy council!

After hearing opening keynotes highlighting how the initiative has progressed and presenters with local success stories, the day asked people to work hard and dive deep through one of seven different strategy sessions. The many good ideas and insights that were generated are captured in typed notes from each of the sessions posted on www.michiganfood.org. Participants in the sessions, as well as others who are interested, are encouraged to stay connected with one another in order to continue to carry the work forward!
