The Western U.P. Food Systems Council works to strengthen our communities by identifying and supporting our food system’s unique resources, local needs, and regional priorities.


Our Council’s website, mission, vision, and case statement are currently under development as we use our first year to build partnerships and engage with communities in the Western Upper Peninsula, Michigan.
