Michigan State University

East Lansing, Mich.



The teaching and research university has established the Center for Regional Food Systems, which leverages applied research, education and outreach to advance understanding of and engagement with regional food systems. A three-year grant enables CRFS to develop and lead the Michigan Food Hub Learning and Innovation Network, an initiative to increase the capacity of local food hubs to supply healthy food profitably to new markets, including underserved communities.
