We will map where the ingredients for a typical cooking class comes from. We will calculate the miles and illustrate their trip on our map. We will then identify farmers from our local farmer's market that could supply these ingredients. We will calculate these miles and compare with the original ingredients. Using our grant money, we will start supporting these local farmers and sourcing our ingredients from them.

• The NMU Cat Packs program strives to reduce childhood hunger in the Marquette area by providing North Star students healthy meals over the weekends and holidays. North Star Academy’s students live in Marquette, Negaunee, Ishpeming, Gwinn, Munising, and KI Sawyer. Some of these areas, particularly Gwinn and KI Sawyer, are considered food deserts, or geographical areas where affordable and nutrient dense foods are difficult to obtain. Food deserts are particularly impactful for community members who do not have access to an automobile. Students who have received Cat Packs have stated that the healthy food packages over the weekend help to reduce their hunger-related anxiety. Having their basic needs met allows kids to focus more on their academic and personal development goals. This is especially important as diet is linked to one’s learning capacities, concentration, attention span, sleeping habits, intelligence, and psychological behaviors. We are working on obtaining continued funding and in-kind food donations through soliciting location businesses, granting foundations and large corporations.
