Support Our Work

Support our Mission

The UM Sustainable Food Program is supported through volunteerism, grants and donors like you. Your gift will:

Improve the quality of food and sustainability education at the University of Michigan and train students to be future leaders using real action and educational experiences. You will also strengthen our community through partnerships and collaborative projects between groups on campus and off. Finally, you will be supporting work that seeks to improve human and environmental health by employing ecologically sound, sustainable and ethical growing practices at the Campus Farm and in our Satellite Gardens.
