About

The mission of Macomb’s Food Initiatives Group (FIG) is to involve community members in supporting a fair, sustainable and local food system.

Our goals are to promote the participation of community members in:

  • educating consumers about food choices
  • engaging consumers in growing, eating, and preparing food
  • fostering food-related networks
  • pursuing favorable policy changes in agriculture

The Food Initiatives Group began in the fall of 2007.  A listserve was established about the same time and our first officers were elected in the spring of 2008.

Our current Board of Directors consists of:

Chair: Dan Barclay

Vice-Chair: Ann Runner

Treasurer and acting Secretary: Jamie Lane

Membership Coordinator: Margaret Ovitt

at large representatives: Holly Stovall, Vajo Necik, and Scott Worl.
