Engage your community to grow 10 Cents A Meal across Michigan

Now in its third year of implementation as a pilot program, 10 Cents A Meal For Michigan's Kids & Farms has expanded its impact from 16 school districts originally to 57!

Whether you are connected to a school district currently receiving 10 Cents a Meal funding or are interested in supporting Farm to School programming in your area, you can support local food access by sharing ideas with your community.

Reach out to people and organizations like your school board, parent organizations, food service directors, legislators, health and wellness advocates, farmers and farm groups. Share Our Website, Success Stories, and the impactful documents below. Let them know what people are saying!

Watch this video and see Senator Hansen, outgoing chair of the education budget committee, talk with students about 10 Cents a Meal and the role community members play in the continued expansion of the program.

Check out these Tools for Schools and help your school community get prepared to grow a successful farm to school program and secure 10 Cents a Meal grant funds.
