When you support Groundwork’s Food & Farming program, you help propel one of the most promising health, economic and environmental transformations in America today: the local food movement. Local food is not just a trend, but an enduring and essential system that improves the well-being of children and adults as it improves the income of local farmers and keeps farmland open.

Fifteen years ago, Groundwork became one of the first organizations in the nation to commit resources, staff and ingenuity to nurturing the early local food industry. We’ve since helped create a local food economy in northwest Lower Michigan that is among the strongest and most respected in the country. Today our work has marvelous momentum, as we expand local foods in school cafeterias, in food pantries, in grocery stores and even in the doctor’s office! 

Join us in growing the local food movement!
