Food Initiative

Bringing healthy food to the area

Copper Shores Community Health Foundation is passionate about making a difference when it comes to food in Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw and Ontonagon counties.

Copper Shores Food Initiative is two-fold. First, the food initiative aims to improve access to locally grown and healthful foods within our community. Second, it provides educational resources and tools to promote sustainable changes to eating and lifestyle habits for all. We'd love for you to make a financial donation to our Food Initiative


Subscribe for Updates

Every season we'll be putting out an email with updates on our Food Initiative. That will include project updates, volunteer opportunities, health advice, resources to grow and/or buy food locally and more. 

Healthy, Local Recipes

In the summer of 2020 we're proud to support the local farmers markets by creating recipe cards featuring items you can find at the markets! These recipes are easy, fun, healthy and delicious. Some of them were featured during the Biblio Bistro video series, others are simply available for you to check out. If you want a print version of one of these, stop by one of our local markets!

Keweenaw Grown Foods

We believe a vital factor to a healthier tomorrow involves improved access to fresh, nutritious and locally sourced foods. Better yet, the knowledge of what to do with those foods once you’ve got them. This is where the Keweenaw Grown Food series steps in. This series includes recipes and educational flyers that feature information on peak season, how to select/store, health benefits and ways to use different types of fresh, locally grown food.
