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.
