It's no secret. There is a food crisis in Michigan with 1 in 5 residents having trouble affording enough food. What are the barriers to food access? What strategies will help overcome the challenges affecting our food system? What best practice models exist?

These are some of the questions we will address at this important summit attended by representatives from the business, government, agriculture, education and non-profit sectors, as we launch a collaborative effort to end hunger in Southeast Michigan.
