Here is a note from the MSU CS Mott Group Farm to School Coordinator, Colleen Matts.   This meeting will offer you with a chance to start to figure out your opportunities to sell to your local schools.




Attention Farmers and Vendors:


Schools can provide new, stable, steady markets for Michigan farmers.

Join us for a Meet & Greet event that will give Michigan farmers and vendors a chance to talk with school food service directors from the Saginaw, Bay, and Midland areas who are interested in purchasing local foods for school meals.


Get your questions answered!

Participating school food service directors will discuss:

· Products of interest for schools

· Bidding procedures

· Delivery, packaging, and payment arrangements

· And much more!
