Healthy School Meals for All Benefits Our Community!

Advocate for families to opt in 1-2 days a week and lobby your representatives

MTI believes that NO child should go hungry! Child hunger impacts academic performance, behavior, cognitive and physical development, social well-being and our workplace environment. Free school meals benefits our local economy, Wisconsin agriculture/farming, and facilitates a healthier Madison community.

When families opt into our school meal programs more funds are available to make our lunches better. Encourage families to opt in 1-2 days a week at minimum and contact your local representatives to let them know that you are in support of healthy school meals for all Wisconsin children!

“Being part of this series has impacted my instruction in an amazing way. I have deeper relationships with students and families. My classroom is more inclusive and I have the same high standards for all kids. Students are sharing more. Learning is increasing and school is more fun for me and my students. It is a ton of work. And I am validated with every positive parent message, student hug, thank you note, and when they cheer as they achieve a new academic hurdle. I am making a difference with myself and a lot of people who have felt less acknowledged in other environments.”
