Food Policy

http://cedam.info/policy/food-policy/

Throughout 2016, CEDAM in partnership with Prima Civitas, will explore innovative projects happening around Michigan connecting communities with fresh, locally grown food.

Topics for Discussion:

We will talk about food hubs as economic drivers for the physical and economic health of our state, food innovation districts, educational and talent pipelines, food policy councils and urban farming. We will also offer a snap shot into the interconnection between farm to fork and much in between. How does local food access really affect our state, our health and our children?

Current Food Policy Initiatives:

Anyone who might like more information on existing food policy initiatives at either the state or federal level is encouraged to look at the forms below, which contain brief descriptions of various programs, organizations and coalitions concerned with specific food policy issues – with links to their webpages.
