The Masonic Association of Marquette is proud to be the recipient of a $49,800 Michigan Department of Agriculture Value Added & Regional Food Systems grant to expand equipment offerings for local food entrepreneurs over the next three years.
The Masonic Building will use the funds for:
- Upgrading and expanding our kitchen equipment selection.
- Providing increased cold and lockable dry storage space.
- Adding freezer carts or trikes that allow members to sell their cold products directly to consumers during summer months.
- Add a remote-access entryway and tracking system to our facilities that will allow for member access 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
We are thrilled that our partner organization is helping us bring our innovation dreams to fruition and excited to serve our community of food entrepreneurs more. Read our full press release here!
