Select Michigan and Associated Food & Petroleum Dealers Launch 'Buy Local, Eat Fresh'
Date:7/9/2008

Wayne State University's Nutrition and Food Science Program will be present at ten grocery stores located in the targeted communities. Products will be available to sample, as the nutritionists provide information on the benefits of eating local produce, suggested recipes and menu planning advice.

"Ultimately, the program seeks a ten percent increase in the sale of Michigan-grown or produced foods over the ten targeted neighborhoods," Shallal added.

In addition to the AFPD and the Michigan Department of Agriculture, other "Buy Local, Eat Fresh" collaborators include Spartan Stores, Inc., Save-A-Lot Limited, Wayne State University Nutrition and Food Science Program, and the City of Detroit Department of Health and Wellness.
