This document is the result of surveying 781 families from Battle Creek, Detroit, Grand Rapids and (through a non WKKF funding source) several rural counties. Additionally 105 in-depth interviews were conducted. The families worked with the grantee (Univ of MI) to co-create the policy recommendations in this KP. One of the recommendations is for expanded programs like Double Up Food Bucks - which is an initiative that WKKF has supported for several years. We shared the attached brief with state legislators that we spoke with during Legislative Education Day.

The public health field experienced a collective "moment" in 2020, declaring racism a public health crisis in cities, counties, and states across the country. However, since then, too many have slipped back to "business as usual." The new report Centering Racial Justice to Strengthen the Public Health Ecosystem: Lessons from COVID-19 from Prevention Institute and Big Cities Health Coalition calls on us all to reignite our collective commitment to bold transformational change rooted in equity and racial justice.
In 2016, some Black, Indigenous, and Asian American food systems stakeholders and allies from across the state of Mississippi were able to convene together for the first time to dream about transforming the local and state level food systems. This gathering was made possible by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF). The outcome of the gathering was the formation of the Mississippi Food Justice Collaborative with the common goal of improving the health of Mississippians through increasing access to healthy, local, culturally appropriate food, educating people about healthy food, building the capacity of local farmers, and increasing the amount of local food purchased by schools and institutions.This is a collaborative write up produced primarily by Noel Didla, in partnership with the co-stewards of the Center for MS Food Systems. https://alliancems.org/growing-regional-food-systems-economies/
Espanol - En la Riviera Maya, donde se construyen complejos turísticos entre densas selvas y playas de arena blanca, se encuentra Chemuyil. Aquí el futuro del turismo avanza enormemente, desplazando a los habitantes originales y privatizando sus playas. Pero los mayas de la zona se están organizando para preservar estos ecosistemas, que serán cruciales en la lucha contra el cambio climático. Esta es una cobertura de Gatopardo publicada en nuestra edición de enero y este es el resultado de la primera fase de una de las seis coberturas en colaboración con la WKKF.English - In the Riviera Maya, where tourist complexes are built between dense jungles and white sand beaches, is Chemuyil.

Farm to Child Care, also called Farm to Early Care and Education (ECE), is about teaching young children where their food comes from and building their confidence to grow, select, and prepare their own fresh food. It is about celebrating our connections through food to nature, our cultures and identities, and to each other. Farm to ECE brings together children, teachers, families,staff, and local farmers and food producers in a wide network of support.
For more than 30 years, scientists have investigated an area of deep water in the Gulf known as a "dead zone," which contains so little oxygen that fish and other marine life flee from it or die (Hazen et al. 2009). In the summer of 2017, it swelled to the size of New Jersey. The size of this area experiencing often fatally low levels of oxygen—what scientists call hypoxia— varies depending upon spring rains and snow melt. These carry large quantities of excess soil nutrients, largely nitrogen, down the Mississippi and Atchafalaya rivers to the Gulf. There, this polluted water sets off a chain reaction of ecological and economic consequences straining the resilience of diverse fishing operations and local communities that depend upon a healthy Gulf for their livelihoods.

For over a decade, Michigan has had the ability to be more inclusive and enroll thousands more of the state's children in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) but has not yet opted to do so. Specifically, these children are "lawfully residing," or lawfully present immigrants who meet Medicaid or CHIP state residency and income requirements, yet have lived in the United States for fewer than five years. Federal law requires lawfully residing immigrants to live in the country for five years before they can enroll in some public programs. The 2009 Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA), however, gave states the Immigrant Children's Health Improvement Act (ICHIA) option to waive the five-year waiting period for Medicaid and CHIP for lawfully residing children (up to 21 years old) and/or pregnant people.
