The Fund you’re helping to create will immediately purchase food from local farmers to feed local families through regional food pantries.
Local food purchases help to keep small farm families financially solvent while also providing nutritionally dense food to the people of Northwest Lower Michigan. Local purchases also keep dollars in our region, resulting in multiple positive economic ripple effects.
