Greetings Michigan Farm to School partners and friends,
We are pleased to announce the creation of the MSU Center for Regional Food Systems, a Michigan State University initiative that addresses the potential for more regionally-integrated food systems to promote equity, sustainability and thriving local economies. The newly-established center will bring together the applied research, education, and outreach expertise of faculty and staff at MSU to advance understanding of and engagement with regional food systems throughout Michigan, the United States, and the world. The Center’s efforts will leverage the earlier work and partnerships of MSU’s former C.S. Mott Group for Sustainable Food Systems and the MSU Student Organic Farm, as the two organizations come together to form the Center for Regional Food Systems.
For more information, please see the full press release attached or at http://foodsystems.msu.edu/uploads/file/CRFSPressRelease.pdf.
