Family Favorite Recipes

Dear UM Parents,

While we will never be able to replace the secrets of your home kitchen, we can bring a little bit of home to our student guests with your help; our Family Favorites Program does just that. Recipes sent in by families from around the world are prepared in the Food Zoo kitchen for more than 1,000 students, faculty, and staff to enjoy. We select recipes in the fall and spring for our two Family Favorites Days.  We welcome main dishes, vegan and vegetarian dishes, soups, salads, stews, casseroles, desserts, or whatever your student loves the most.  Sometimes, the recipes are so popular we simply have to add them to our menu rotation. 

If we add your recipe to our menu, we will deliver a commemorative plaque as an expression of our appreciation for your contribution.
