Take the survey now - workforce assessment of Michigan food system

What will it take to keep Michigan’s good food workforce growing?
Please tell us what you think! Survey is now open. 
Starting today, we are doing a survey and interviews that focus specifically on the portion of the Michigan food system where good food is grown, processed, distributed, sold, and consumed in Michigan markets, as well as the organizations that support this system.

Please take the survey and share it with others! Se ofrece la encuesta en Español.

We are doing this workforce assessment research because foods grown and processed in Michigan are vital to Michigan’s economy and workforce, and Michigan good food is becoming even more important to the state’s economy.

But what we don’t know is: What will it take to keep Michigan’s good food workforce growing?

We are studying:
  • the types and wage ranges of existing and future jobs
  • employer demand for these jobs
  • what skills, education, and training is needed to perform these jobs

The survey and interviews are happening now through midnight, May 17. Se ofrece la encuesta en Español.

For more details about this research, please visit the project webpage.

Can you help us?

We need to connect with employers, workers, educators, training providers, and other stakeholders in Michigan’s local and regional food system.

Here are 5 ways to help:
  1. Share your data and information
  2. Take the survey
  3. Let others know to contact us
  4. Send ideas for who to contact or data to include
  5. Volunteer to participate in an interview
