We envision a thriving community in which just and regenerative food practices are lived out. The collaborative solutions and programs that Access facilitates equip community partners, invest in our local food economy, grow health, and convene food and faith conversations.
The work of Good Food Systems aims to address food access, health, and justice in our local food system. Good Food, as defined by the Michigan Good Food Charter, is food that is fair– no one along the supply chain was exploited for its creation, green– it was produced in a manner that is environmentally sustainable, healthy– it provides nourishment and enables people to thrive, and affordable– all people have access to it. We believe the the values of a Good Food system create a thriving community for all. We pursue this work through the following initiatives (click on the buttons below to learn more):
