Food Access

Task Force Leader, Food Access: Meghan McDermott, Food and Farming Policy Specialist, Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities,

Northwest Michigan is an agricultural wonderland full of enough healthful food to fill the plates of everyone in our community. However, existing barriers and lack of awareness of these barriers make it difficult for many of our neighbors to access this cornucopia. The Food Access task force works with our region’s dedicated farming community and innovative food programs to creatively overcome these barriers and secure healthful food for all.
