Fresh and Local
More than 38% of the food used by Michigan Dining is grown or processed in the State of Michigan. We purchase as much as we can from local farmers like the UM Campus Farm, whose student-run farm is just minutes away from Central Campus. You can find local foods by looking for the Local Foods label or other signage in our locations
