10 Cents a Meal Applications open through October 26

10 Cents a Meal Applications open through October 26
The 10 Cents a Meal for Michigan’s Kids & Farms grant application is now open. 10 Cents provides matching grants for schools and early childhood education centers to purchase and serve Michigan-grown vegetables, fruits, and legumes.

Funding for the 10 Cents program recently increased from $575,000 to $2 million for the 2020-2021 school year. The program has also expanded statewide!

  • For the first time, schools and districts participating in USDA Child Nutrition Programs across the entire state are eligible to apply. 

  • Sponsors of early childhood education centers that are participating in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) are also eligible to apply for the first time.
If you’re interested in seeing 10 Cents come to your community, share this opportunity to make sure your school district and early childhood education center know about the program. Check out some ways that community members can show their support!
