Farm to School in Michigan: Growing Interest & Greater Participation

May 2, 2010 - Author: Kathryn Colasanti, Colleen Matts, Mike Hamm & Susan Smalley

In the fall of 2009, the C.S. Mott Group for Sustainable Food Systems (now CRFS) at Michigan State University conducted a follow-up survey to the 2004 Survey of K-12 School Food Service Providers in Michigan. The 2004 survey showed that Michigan K-12 School Food Service Directors (FSDs) were “ready and willing to make linkages to Michigan agriculture.” The 2009 survey, based on responses from 270 people (nearly one-third of all FSDs in Michigan), shows that many FSDs have since acted on this interest and are making Farm to School a reality.
