What is a "Food Story"?
 story about the importance of food in your life. Whether food is a major part of your culture, your favorite dinner table memory, or an every day battle, we want to hear YOUR FOOD STORY.

We all know that eating is important, but food is so much more than that! It is our sustenance, providing us with the energy to lead the incredible lives we do; it is our daily routine, many times a day every day starting from the moment we are born and carried for the rest of our lifetimes; it is the fabric that weaves together our stories with the stories of others, that brings us together around a common good, that unites us all on an entirely human level. Food is always reminding us that yes, indeed, everybody eats!

Interested in sharing your story with us? Interested in being a part of Ingham County history and meeting and hearing about others’ food cultures and histories? You can contact us at or 517-887-4539.
