5 Easy Ways to Be Persuasive
1. Use this messaging when you contact your legislators and the governor.
10 Cents a Meal for School Kids & Farms has proven itself as a powerful way to introduce healthy, delicious food to children in Michigan while investing in Michigan agriculture and local economies. Please increase funding to $2 million and turn this pilot project into a program that is available statewide. Schools around the state should have the opportunity to apply for these matching fund grants out of one statewide 10 Cents fund. 10 Cents a Meal also should be expanded to include sponsors of early childcare centers. Thank you for your support of 10 Cents a Meal!
2. Personalize your letter to legislators and the governor.
Add your own thoughts about why it is important to invest in healthy, locally grown food for Michigan’s children. Want some ideas? You can find additional information about the program’s impacts on children and farms in fun quotes, data, and infographics in the legislative report
