Candidate Education: Michigan House of Representatives

Educate Your Community on 10 Cents a Meal 

Never miss an opportunity to educate your elected officials about 10 Cents a Meal for Michigan’s Kids & Farms, the popular and effective state program that helps schools and early childhood education centers purchase Michigan-grown fruits and vegetables for school meals. Even if candidates are incumbents, they may not know about the program because it is a line item in the big School Aid Budget. But existing and would-be policymakers love learning about 10 Cents a Meal, and the more people know about it,  the more we can make investing in healthy, locally grown food for children in schools a part of Michigan’s identity. The COVID-19 crisis has shown how this is important now more than ever.
