The UM Sustainable Food Program provides support to organizations on campus dedicated to building a sustainable food system.
We do this by helping to showcase Member Groups and their work on this website and the UMSFP Newsletter, by facilitating transparency when working on projects so that other organizations can offer to help or work collaboratively expanding each group's focus area, by hosting regular meetings to cross pollinate groups with new ideas and creativity, and ensuring stability by using the UMSFP to keep groups active and engaged especially as students and leaders graduate from the university.
