Achieving Food Systems Visions - Past, Present, Future

Please join us for a three-part series featuring guest speakers from states that, like Michigan, have visionary plans that guide their local food systems progress!



The goal of this series is to generate ideas about directions for the Michigan Good Food movement after 2020 by learning from similar initiatives in other states and reflecting on the first eight years of the Michigan Good Food Charter in action.



The series will feature: 

• Ellen Kahler, Vermont Farm to Plate

• Michael Dahl, Minnesota Food Charter

• Tom Kelly, Food Solutions New England (six state region)



Each speaker will address:

• Developing a vision and structure for food systems work

• Facilitating collaboration across food system sectors

• Pursuing policy change

• Ensuring equity
