Taste the Local Difference creates jobs, hires new staff members in Northeast Michigan & the Upper Peninsula

Taste the Local Difference® (TLD) is a local food and farm marketing agency, with a mission to sell more local food in the communities they serve.

The TLD program has over 13 years of experience in marketing local farmers, farmers markets, food processors, restaurants and more. They specialize in building relationships and developing new market opportunities throughout the food system, and this local food programming, along with new jobs, is coming to Northeast Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.

New staff members Molly Stepanski and Melissa Orzechowski have been hired by TLD as the regional Local Food Coordinators in Northeast Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, respectively.

TLD’s Local Food Coordinators act as voices for the regional food system, and offer a variety of customized services benefiting the local food and farming communities in their specific geographic areas. The benefits of developing a stronger local food system can lead to more jobs, a thriving regional economy and improved access to healthy food.

TLD is grateful for the support of Northeast Michigan Council of Governments (NEMCOG), the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development (MDARD), The UP Food Exchange, Marquette Chamber of Commerce and Marquette Food Co-op. These positions were made possible with their involvement.
