Farm to School
10 Cents a Meal
Help us provide schools with 10 cents a meal to purchase locally grown fruits and vegetables.
10 Cents a Meal for School Kids & Farms is a joint, two-year project of the Michigan Land Use Institute’s farm to school program, the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District, and nine school districts in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties.
Help kids eat healthy, learn well, and connect to their community with locally grown foods! Learn more about the program in our Farm to School in Northwest Michigan section below.
Here on our Farm to School home page, you'll also find:
► Area schools and camps that are seeking or already buying locally grown food. And we plan profiles of local school efforts in the coming year.
► Directories of farms with products for cafeterias or fundraisers and educational opportunities like classroom visits and field trips. There’s also a directory of chefs, nutrition educators and other community resources.
► Garden and farm to school curriculum and fundraising resources.
