What if everyone in our community could have equal access to food that nourishes, creates good jobs, is affordable, and treats the earth well as it is produced? We believe it’s possible. That’s why we walk. Share the vision, walk with us! #Walk4GoodFood

WHAT IS A GOOD FOOD SYSTEM?
Access envisions a thriving community where all residents have access to healthy and affordable local food. Good Food Systems approach this vision by investing finances and relational capital into our local food economy, growing health equity to reduce health disparities, and supporting community power. 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 an environmentally sustainable manner, healthy – it provides nourishment and enables people to thrive, and affordable – all people have access to it. 

WHO DOES THE WALK FOR GOOD FOOD 2021 SUPPORT?
The 2021 Walk for Good Food supports Access of West Michigan as well as 13 additional organizations committed to working towards Good Food System in our community. 

HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED? 
As COVID continues to impact our community, we have made the decision to host a virtual walk again this year. This means households are encouraged to walk in their neighborhoods! You can do your walk anytime between May 2 and May 12. Follow along via Access’ social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) using #Walk4GoodFood. We encourage creativity! 

Here’s how it works:
*Sign up as an individual or as part of a team by clicking "I want to fundraise for this" on the right side of this webpage (under the donation options). 
*Walkers and teams can walk in whatever way fits: The Walk is historically a 5K, you can find a route that matches that if you'd like- either all at once or split up over multiple days.
*All walkers are encouraged to fundraise pledges and donations to support your walk! You automatically create a fundraising page online when you sign up. You can also collect donations and keep track, sending them into Access after the walk.
*Your business or organization can also sponsor the walk!

If you'd like to mail a donation instead of giving online, please note it is for the Walk for Good Food, what team and/or walker you are sponsoring, and send to: Access of West Michigan, 1700 28th Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49508.
