Tell us your thoughts and about experiences with Ten Cents A Meal. 

"I believe the 10 Cents a Meal program has very positively impacted our ability to get our fruits into schools throughout Northwest Michigan and beyond, primarily through Cherry Capital Foods. We are presently storing significant quantities of apples so that we can provide them throughout the entire school year—apples that otherwise would end up being shipped, some after processing, around the country, if not the world. Instead, they’re being enjoyed by Michigan school students, most of them locally! This program has a dramatic positive impact on the local, and statewide economy, as we, a grower, are able to market our produce locally, at much better economic returns than would be possible otherwise." -Richard Friske, Friske Orchards, Charlevoix County
