'Good Food Battle Creek' works to integrate more local food

Updated: Wednesday, January 8, 2014 |
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Good Food Battle Creek is making progress in its movement to integrate more local food in the area.

Good Food is comprised of organizations and residents that share passion and interest issues related to food justice and strengthening local food systems.

Five agency participants received grants to help support its work.

Those came from Fair Food Network--a national nonprofit that works in the area of sustainability and food systems.

The Fair Foods Network chose their partners in Battle Creek because they believe they share in their goal to re-design the food system and provide better access to healthy food for all.
