U.P. Food Exchange

The U.P. Food Exchange (UPFE, The Exchange) is a partnership created between The Marquette Food Co-op and MSU Extension to support the local food activities already taking place within the Upper Peninsula’s distinct regions (eastern, central, western). The Western U.P. Health Department serves as a point of contact for stakeholders in the western region and manages communication to and from the Exchange. UPFE assists with the development and ongoing maintenance of the three successful regional food hubs. UPFE serves as a resource portal for farmers, businesses, and individuals looking to connect with and actively participate in their local food system.
