Deadline Extended to 9/14: Farm to Institution Food Safety Survey

Do you purchase fresh produce for an institution or know someone who does? Please consider taking and/or sharing a survey about food safety requirements for suppliers at the following link:  All of the questions are in multiple choice format and the survey will take an estimated time of 7 minutes to complete. Responses are anonymous and participation is completely voluntary. The survey will be open through September 14, 2020.


A team of educators from Michigan State University Extension, in partnership with Fresh Systems, LLC., Michigan Food and Farming Systems, and the Wallace Center at Winrock International have developed a national survey about institutional food safety programs to inform educational initiatives for fresh produce buyers. The aim of this survey is to gather data on accepted food safety verification programs for fresh produce, awareness of the program’s requirements for farms, and confidence in these verification programs.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding the survey, feel free to contact Mariel Borgman from MSU Extension at
