Summer Food Benefits for Area Students

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services recently announced that 16 Michigan school districts and intermediate school districts have been selected for a program which provides food benefits during the summer months for any child who received free or reduced-price school lunches.  Locally, the Sanilac Intermediate School District was one of those recipients. The Program is in its eighth year and over 56,000 students in Michigan will benefit from it. The EBT card that students received in the mail will be pre-loaded with a nutritious food package. The program began on June 1st and will expire on September 2nd.  Each student will get $30 of nutritious food per month for those three months such as milk, eggs, fresh fruits, and vegetables.
