$57k to do what? - throw some banners on walls or run a couple of local radio ads. How did this program get approved? How many other communities across the country are getting these dollars. Coca Cola is running a good ad campaign about reducing calories. I'm just sick of wasted tax dollars!

The $57K amounts to about $25 per person in Madelia (pop. 2305) or $64 per household (900). For that amount of money they will be told not to drink soda? Really? That's it? In South Central MN for an investment of $80,100 in 2013 there were 455,448 meals served by Hunger Free Minnesota. Now that is a good use of money.
