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?

Sarah Monte has been spreading the word about good food for more 10 years. A certified teacher with degrees in history and political science, Sarah also has experience with farming, managing farmers markets, marketing, and curriculum development in the health and local food sectors. She loves helping people make connections and find resources in the local food network, so she’d be glad to answer any questions you have.
