Farm to School meetings in Livingston and Saginaw Counties this week!

Greetings farmers,

Two Farm to School meetings are scheduled for this week that I’d like to share. Join us to learn more about how you can take advantage of this growing market opportunity! And please help us spread the word!




At this event, Michigan farmers can meet school food service directors from Livingston and Washtenaw Counties who are interested in purchasing local foods for school meals programs. Participating school food service directors will discuss products of interest, competitive bidding procedures, delivery, packaging, and payment arrangements, and much more!

Whether or not you attended the first meeting, interested farmers and vendors from the area are encouraged to attend to continue to the conversation about incorporating fresh, local produce into school meals programs.
