Invitation: 10 Cents a Meal Network Launch at Michigan Good Food Summit

Greetings all,

Wouldn't it be great if investing in local food for kids in schools became a part of Michigan's identity?

We at Groundwork Center are launching a 10 Cents a Meal Network to better connect those of us who would like to see this happen, and who want to take part in spreading the word about 10 Cents a Meal for School Kids & Farms so that it grows. That could mean educating a policymaker or sharing information in ways that support schools in our own communities. Let's use all of our voices.

And let's get to know each other face-to-face during lunch at the Michigan Good Food Summit on Monday, October 22. We will have at least two tables reserved for us at the Good Food Summit. Please click on this link and let us know if you can join us. 

(There's also a place on the link to check if you won't be joining us for lunch but would like to be a part of the network—which will include some conference calls open to all, as you are able.)

I find that conference calls are so much better if we've first met in person.  And the Summit is a place where so many of us will be. Please do rsvp!

All best,

This year is a pivotal year for 10 Cents because a majority of the seats in the legislature will likely be filled by new senators and representatives because of term limits. It is a prime opportunity to educate candidates and future legislators. Our key legislative champions are term-limited, but support of 10 Cents continues to receive bipartisan support (see this press release from the Michigan Department of Education.)
