Since 2004, the Michigan State University Center for Regional Food Systems has conducted six surveys to understand the landscape of Farm to Institution efforts in Michigan. A new synthesis brings together this research to summarize what is currently understood about local food purchasing by institutions and about the producers who sell to them, what is still unknown and what next steps are being taken in the research.
