MI Farm to School News

Greetings all!

It was great to meet many of you at the School Nutrition Association of Michigan (SNAM) conference this past weekend!  For those of you who missed us, team Michigan Farm to School represented at the trade show on Saturday in Battle Creek, checking in with old and new friends and spreading the Farm to School word.  Welcome to those of you new to the list!  It was a fun day filled with corn hole, Michigan Specialty Crop trivia, and lots of education on Farm to School and Cultivate Michigan. It was a fun afternoon, and we left with lots of ideas for how to make next year even better!

Here's some updates from the last two weeks:

  • 2016 National Farm to Cafeteria Conference: Save the Date, and submit a proposal! - June 2-4, 2016, Madison, WI
    • The 8th National Farm to Cafeteria Conference is coming to Madison, Wis., next June, and we want to feature your expertise and stories of success, challenges and learning. Deadline for submitting proposals is December 4th!
  • The Michigan October School Garden Newsletter has a lot of good information on school garden grants.  See attached, if you're interested!
There was a healthy layer of frost on my car this morning in Lansing, so stay warm this week!

All the best,
