The Michigan Electronic Grants System Plus (MEGS+) is an online application system for schools/districts participating in the National School Lunch Program. This brief outlines results of a two-part optional question on local food purchasing that the Michigan Department of Education added to the 2014 MEGS+ online application. Over half of the applicants (54%) responded affirmatively that they currently purchase local foods for their school food program.
