Quote from State Representative Timothy Madden

“This has been a wonderful opportunity to work with students from Martha's Vineyard [Charter School] and Schools across the Commonwealth to recognize and promote the importance of locally grown food and farm to school programs,” said State Representative Timothy Madden (D-Nantucket). “The students [from Martha's Vineyard Public Charter School] have been there every step of the way, from proposing the idea and testifying, to being part of the bill signing. They were able to see their efforts come to fruition, which speaks highly of the students and highly of the legislative process. It’s been terrific working with everyone involved and I thank the students, teachers, community members, legislature and Governor for their continuous advocacy and support.”
