Announcing the Michigan Good Food Summit Keynote Speaker

2023 Summit Agenda
Since 2010, people across the state and country have gathered at the Michigan Good Food Summit to network, share, reflect, and learn about good food work happening in Michigan. Aligned with the goals and priorities of the Michigan Good Food Charter, the biennial Michigan Good Food Summit aims to advance good food in Michigan by amplifying the stories and efforts of people across the state. On Friday, May 19, we are excited to host a hybrid event with in-person and virtual participation options.
The Keynote Speaker
Shiloh Maples is an Anishinaabe community organizer, seed keeper, and storyteller. During her time as a student, Shiloh recognized the powerful potential of food systems to heal and transform communities. Since then, Shiloh has been committed to serving the Indigenous food sovereignty movement and revitalizing her own ancestral foodways. Shiloh is currently the Program Manager for Native American Food Sovereignty Alliance.
