2023 Michigan Good Food Summit

Join us for the 2023 Michigan Good Food Summit on Friday, May 19. This will be a hybrid event with in-person and virtual attendance options. The in-person conference will be held at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center.

The interactive agenda will bring together food systems advocates and practitioners to:

  • Celebrate the publication of the 2022 Michigan Good Food Charter
  • Highlight leaders working toward Michigan's good food future
  • Connect with others to plan for action, collaboration, and next steps

Whether you join us in person or virtually, all registered participants will receive the following:

  • Live Event Access: All registered participants will be given access to the general session, which will be livestreamed from the in-person location. 
  • Session Recordings and Digital Resource Materials: Recordings will be made available if you cannot attend live.
  • Breakout Strategy Session: You can choose which breakout strategy session you would like to participate in. Virtual and in-person participants will be able to join breakouts via our online platform or in-person venue, respectively. 
  • Accessibility: We will provide auto-generated closed captioning during our livestream and with the recordings. Longer sessions will have built-in breaks. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions and use the registration process to indicate if you have accommodations requests.
  • Networking Opportunities: Our virtual platform allows for networking and connection. The 2023 Summit is intended to provide interactivity and networking within and across sectors and areas of interest.
