RFKM Opens Petition to MCPS


Sign our petition here

Over the last year, RFKM has been building grassroots support from parents, students and community members in Montgomery County to demand better food for our children. Now is the moment that we are bringing it all together with an online petition designed to show support for the priorities of RFKM members by parents, students, community members, businesses, churches, health care providers, organizations and educators in the county. We will collect signatures over the next 2 months, then plan to deliver them to the Board of Education and Superintendent Starr at a BOE meeting in May, with hopefully many of you in attendance. 

We are counting on you for this advocacy campaign to be a success! Please sign, have your spouse and kids sign, share it on Facebook, tweet it and e-mail it to all your friends in MCPS. 

Thank you!

RFKM in the News

Yesterday morning, The Gazette reported on a letter sent by Montgomery County Council Vice President George Leventhal and President Craig Rice to MCPS Superintendent Josh Starr asking for many of RFKM members’ top priorities.
