Join the MI Good Food Charter Council & Summit Planning Committee!

Hello everyone!

The Michigan Good Food Charter Council and Summit Planning Committees are seeking committee members from a diverse set of cross-sector food system perspectives and backgrounds!

The 2022 Michigan Good Food Charter was developed through a multi-year collaborative process involving representatives from over 150 Michigan agriculture, food, health, education, and governmental organizations. Now that the updated Charter has been published, we are re-establishing our coordination body to support the implementation of the Charter recommendations and planning for a summit for next year.

We are seeking nominees for the following committees that will make up the MI Good Food Charter Council:

  • Coordinating Committee - help us decide how we work together

This committee will design membership, governance, decision-making processes, and outreach and engagement methods that support the implementation of the Michigan Good Food Charter over the next 5-10 years. 

  • Policy Action Working Group - help develop a statewide food policy voice 

This working group will help develop a policy prioritization process, identifying existing policy action leaders and helping build a coalition around policy action related to the charter. 


  • Shared Measurement Committee - help measure progress toward our collective vision

This committee will complete the selection of long-term indicators of progress and help develop the plan to gather data and share progress toward our vision and results statements.

We are also seeking nominees for the:

  • Summit Planning Committee - Help set the stage for another successful 10 years of good food in Michigan.

      We plan to host a hybrid virtual/in-person summit in early spring of 2023. The theme is tentatively, "making Michigan good food work!" We are seeking planning       committee members to help us design this very interactive and exciting event which will serve as the "hard launch" for the 2022 Michigan Good Food Charter. 

      We welcome both previous committee members as well as new folks!

Please complete the application forms below by September 21, 2022 to nominate yourself or another person to join the Michigan Good Food Charter council committees and summit planning committee, respectively.
