Who's Hungry? Access to Local Food in the UP (November 18, 2020)
Updated: Nov 17, 2020
Guest: Sarah Monte, Outreach Director, Marquette Food Co-op
This installment of the “This Is It!” livestream series of the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition features a look into the U.P.'s food system and how farmers and local food advocates are building access to healthy and sustainable food for everyone. Why does small scale, local agriculture matter? What barriers to access stand in the way, and how can we develop healthier communities and a thriving environment through food?
