Community Food Systems

Tomato sign Michigan State University Extension supports the development of community food systems throughout Michigan by providing resources, specialists and educational programs to develop local food policy councils, farm to institutional purchasing, food hubs and farmers markets.

A sustainable community food system integrates food production, processing, distribution, consumption and waste management to enhance the environmental, economic and social health of residents. Farmers, consumers and communities partner to create a more locally-based, self-reliant food economy which improves access to all community members to an adequate, affordable nutritious diet.
