Make Your Back to School Lunch
Michigan GROWN, Michigan GREAT

As the kids head back to school, its good to know they’re eating nutritious lunches that were grown by local farmers. So how do you ensure your child’s lunch contains Michigan-grown foods?

In the mitten, we grow more than 300 different types of foods and products, including dairy products, meats and vegetables, so it’s easy to find locally grown items for school lunch.

Watch the video below to learn more about the foods in your child’s school lunch that are grown right here in Michigan.
