MI Farm to School News

Happy Friday the 13th!

November is Native American Heritage Month! The first article highlights the USDA blog series celebrating efforts to enhance traditional food access in Native American communities.  Also, If you haven't heard the great success of the Apple Crunch, be sure to check out the recent Cultivate Michigan article highlighting the activity!  While you're there, jump on over to check out the fall featured food, just released: Winter Squash! Also, if you didn't see the note last week, proposals are now being accepted for the 2016 National Farm to Cafeteria Conference. Let's show off all the great work that Michiganders are doing!

Here's this week's updates on news, resources, and upcoming opportunities.
