We are doing a happy dance!!! 10 Cents a Meal for Michigan’s Kids & Farms has been expanded statewide!
We asked, and you signed! 800 people and organizations signed on to the letter we sent to Michigan lawmakers asking them to expand 10 Cents a Meal funding to cover the entire state, including Detroit.
Michigan legislature and governor agree to supplemental funding bill that retroactively funds 10 Cents a Meal for the 19-20 school year!
The best time to educate legislators and legislators-to-be about an issue is during the campaign period. So let’s join to make sure they know the value of 10 Cents a Meal! We make it easy with resources and emails!
Schools have become food pantries for children, and meanwhile farmers in some regions are plowing under crops due to closed restaurants and schools. Funding 10 Cents a Meal will pay farmers and feed kids.
Please support the relationships that we are so fortunate to have with local growers by contacting your representatives and senators in Congress now.
