9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Lansing Community College - West Campus
5708 Cornerstone Drive
Lansing, MI 48917

Please join us in Lansing, MI for a day-long event to celebrate, network, and inform the future direction of the Michigan Farm to Institution Network and Cultivate Michigan. 

The Michigan Farm to Institution Network (MFIN) and Cultivate Michigan, its local food purchasing, promotion, and tracking campaign, launched in 2014 to help institutions reach the 20% Michigan foods by 2020 goal of the Good Food Charter. Together, we have accomplished so much to help farm to institution programs grow in Michigan. Now that 2020 is around the corner, it's time to celebrate our journey over the past five years, gather feedback on what you need from MFIN into the future, and do what we do best - network!
