New tool for educating candidates about 10 Cents a Meal before August 4

Friends and Colleagues:

This year, every seat in the Michigan House of Representatives is up for election, and some races will be decided in the August 4 primary. 


Groundwork Center has created an easy email tool for everyone to educate candidates about 10 Cents a Meal for Michigan's Kids & Farms, the state program that supports schools in purchasing locally grown fruits and vegetables. 


  • Email your candidates before the August 4 primary to let them know ways we can invest in our future by supporting healthy kids and thriving farms. 
  • If you meet your candidate in person, share this brief one-pager, which is downloadable when you click on the image. . 


We know that policymakers and interested citizens alike love learning about 10 Cents a Meal, and the more people know about it, the more we can make investing in healthy, locally grown food for children in schools and early child care a part of Michigan's identity. 


Please share this email broadly within your own networks and take a moment to let me know your efforts. We are trying to keep track.

P.S. See the reactions we've witnessed from candidates and legislators when they receive information about 10 Cents a Meal -- and get the latest from the program's key legislative champion in a piece that I wrote here.
