Passing a bold solution like School Meals for All will require a diverse coalition of advocates loudly and proudly urging the legislature to take action against hunger. To help pump up that volume of voices calling for the passage of An Act Relative to Universal School Meals, we have drafted several sign-on letters for advocates like you to add your name ahead of the January 4th hearing where the Joint Committee on Education will hear testimony on our bill.
After December 31st, we will send these letters to the committee as a reminder that support for this bill is spread far and wide across the Commonwealth, from community members of different backgrounds and expertise.
Please use the links below to sign onto a letter if it applies to you and share this post with your network.
