Michigan Farm to Family
Michigan Farm to Family is our innovative Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) incentive program. The goal of the program is to increase sales and consumption of locally-produced, culturally-appropriate fruits and vegetables among Michigan SNAP recipients accessing emergency food. Through Michigan Farm to Family, CSA discount shares are purchased up front from Michigan farmers on behalf of local food pantries.
Michigan Harvest of the Month
Michigan Harvest of the MonthTM (MiHOTMTM) is a multi-level, community-wide initiative for schools, supermarkets, food stores, farmers markets, and emergency food sites. MiHOTM provides best-practice materials that feature fruits and vegetables and that engage audiences where they live, learn, work, play, eat, and shop. MiHOTM provides motivation to participate in healthy eating behaviors and to increase fruit and vegetable consumption.
Physical Education and Nutrition Working TogetherTM (PE-NutTM) is our nutrition and physical education program that uses a whole-school approach to motivate students, parents, and educators to be physically active and eat healthier. PE-Nut is designed to improve health behaviors in a school environment by presenting simple, consistent nutrition and physical activity messages via multiple approaches.
SNAP-Ed at MFF
The SNAP-Ed at Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF) is a statewide network of partners who help low-income Michiganders to eat better and move more. In addition to one-on-one programming, SNAP-Ed at MFF works throughout communities to serve people where they live, learn, work, play, eat, shop, and pray. Our goal is to increase access to both affordable, healthy food and opportunities for physical activity.
