10 Cents a Meal Application Now Open!

10 Cents a Meal 2022-2023 Application is here!
The Michigan Department of Education is now accepting applications for 10 Cents A Meal for Michigan's Kids & Farms!

This state-funded program matches what schools, early care and education settings, and other non-school sponsors spend on Michigan-grown fruits, vegetables, and dry beans with grants of up to 10 cents per meal. It is designed to improve daily nutrition and eating habits for Michigan children and invest in Michigan’s agriculture and local food business economy. 
The application is available in the Next Generation Grant Application and Cash Management System (NexSys) application system.

The deadline to apply is April 4, 2023.
The program is available statewide and open to schools and districts (public, public school academies, or private), and non-school sponsors of USDA Child Nutrition Programs such as child care sites and community organizations participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), or Summer Food Service Program (SFSP).
