Food Policy

Farm marketFood policy affects every resident in Michigan, and Michigan State University Extension provides education and assistance in the formation of food policy, including help in the establishment and development of local food councils. Through partnerships with the MI Food Policy Council and others, MSU Extension works to identify and sustain emerging and existing local councils throughout Michigan. Food Policy Councils are innovative collaborations between citizens and government officials that give voice to the concerns and interests of many who have long been underserved or unrepresented in food decisions of the past. The primary goal is to examine the operation of a local food system and provide ideas and recommendations for improvement through public policy changes. Food Policy Councils act as both forums for food issues and platforms for coordinated action.
