Meet Melody, a candidate in Connecticut’s 2018 Statewide Election and a member of CTKG Ella’s Kid Governor Cabinet! Melody ran on a platform of Food for All, making sure that everyone has access to healthy and affordable food, and had been making a big difference in her community. Recently, she worked with a dietitian at her local grocery store to create an informational video for her community. The video helps viewers learn how to pick healthy food and save money while shopping. You can watch Melody’s video HERE.
