Our Local Food System with Jae Gerhart

Jae Gerhart

Go beyond the surface to understand more about buying local with Jae Gerhart, Washtenaw County Food Systems Coordinator for Michigan State University Extension. What does the growing market for local food look like in Washtenaw County and the surrounding food shed? Join Jae Gerhart to unpack the ins and outs of the local food supply chain in southeast Michigan. We’ll discuss farm-to institution and the many organizations working to keep the food dollars spent in Michigan for Michigan farmers as well as the various mid-level processors and distributors needed to help move southeast-Michigan produced food-products from farm to cafeteria or grocery store. Her talk will also be accompanied by a light brown bag meal.

You’ll leave BAKE! with new found knowledge and inspiration, happy taste buds, and great coupons.

*This talk will be held ZingTrain (3728 Plaza Dr) just across from BAKE!
