We have an important opportunity to help put more schools on the path of purchasing and serving more farm-fresh food to kids – please write to your state representatives today! Two key programs, the New York Farm to School Grants and the New York State Farm to School Purchasing Incentive, work hand in hand to bring more New York grown and raised food to students in K-12 schools. This year’s state budget is under negotiation right now, and the governor and state legislature are considering adjustments to these critical programs.
TAKE ACTION: Send a letter to your state representatives today to let them know you support strong funding for Farm to School to help schools put more healthy, local food on our children’s plates while supporting New York’s farmers!
After taking action, join us on social media to spread the word by sharing this action alert using #NYFood4NYKids!
With your help we can improve the health of our children while supporting New York farmers. Thank you for taking the time to raise your voice alongside us!
In solidarity,
