10 Cents a Meal: New Michigan Department of Education Legislative Report

Hot off the press!  The new Michigan Department of Education 2017-2018 Legislative Report on the 10 Cents a Meal for School Kids & Farms pilot program, which provides grant- winning school districts with up to 10 Cents a Meal in matching funds to purchase locally grown fruits, vegetables and dry beans.

  • This report is also availble for download at on the home page and on its Tools for Communities page. 
  • The same content, slightly re-designed for use as five stand-alone hand-outs, will also soon be available on the Tools for Communities page.
  • To print the full page (and not clip off a tiny portion of the map on the bottom) select “print to fit” for in-house printers.

Please share widely! Lots of fun quotes and data. Our schools, Michigan growers, and other local businesses are making a difference for our kids and our economy.

Also, please like, share and follow the 10 Cents Facebook page — and if you post about 10 Cents or Michigan farm to school, don’t forget to tag @TenCentsMichigan.
