"10 Cents a Meal for School Kids & Farms" Program at Grass Lake Schools

Grass Lake Community Schools is now involved with Michigan's "10 Cents a Meal for School Kids & Farms" program. "10 Cents a Meal" provides schools with match incentive funds to purchase and serve Michigan-grown fruits, vegetables, and dry beans. Funded by the state Legislature since 2016, "10 Cents" is a pilot program that so far has been expanded financially and geographically each year and now is available in more than half of our counties. "10 Cents" has been praised nationally as a leading, innovative model.
