10 Cents A Meal for School Kids & Farms is a state pilot program that provides schools with up to 10 cents per meal in match funding to purchase and serve Michigan-grown fruits, vegetables, and legumes. 

Following the successful 2016-2017 pilot school year, the state of Michigan grew the program from $250,000 to $375,000 and opened up the opportunity to schools in an additional region. Schools in Michigan Prosperity Regions 2, 4 and 9 are now receiving funding. Is your county included? Check it out here.
