Navigating the fresh produce scene in Ann Arbor can be a challenge. Less-than-fresh options are everywhere, from wilted browning spinach to bruised, bottom-of-the-barrel apples. When choosing fresh, it’s best to go straight to the source.
The Ann Arbor Student Food Company sources locally to get everything from the crispest iceberg lettuce to the ripest seasonal fruit and veggies. As a non-profit, student-run organization that is both recognized by the state and registered with the University of Michigan as an official student organization, the company is committed to providing delicious produce options while reducing our collective carbon footprint.
Their mission is to provide students with affordable, sustainable food and a healthier alternative to other A2 food spots. Andrea Kaputska, Vice President of Operations and member of the board of directors at the Ann Arbor Student Food Co. explained that “sustainable food” can mean socially, economically or environmentally sustainable. Most importantly, locally sourced sustainable fruits and vegetables should always consider labor rights, the environment and food production costs. Ann Arbor Student Food Co. provides students with a healthy initiative, lifestyle and active community.
