Governor Dan McKee recently received a letter from the American Heart Association (AHA) requesting that he include funding for Healthy School Meals for All in the RI 2024 Budget. The RI Food Policy Councils members are in agreement with AHA, but wanted to emphasize the potential this program would have for getting more locally produced food into schools and supporting local food businesses, and attached is our letter with these additions.
