Cultivate Michigan is a state-wide campaign that helps Michigan Farm to Institution programs grow through networking, education and research. The campaign works towards the Michigan Good Food Charter goal that Michigan institutions will source 20% of their food from Michigan sources by the year 2020.
This is a goal that Dexter Food and Nutrition Director, Jennifer Mattison takes seriously. Over the past school year, Dexter Food and Nutrition along with the Dexter Farm to School Program have served 3 all-Michigan sourced meals. Ingredients for these meals included: eggs, milk, honey, maple syrup, potatoes, carrots, cherries, apples, chicken and turkey. Keep up the great work, Dexter Food and Nutrition!
