Federal Funds on the Way to Help Feed Michigan Families.
Great news for families worried about their kids going hungry in Michigan. The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program will load up Bridge cards and send them to families that qualify for free or reduced lunches. NO ONE wants these kids to go hungry. There are just under 900 thousand kids that fall into this category in Michigan. The goal is to make sure they are all fed during the pandemic. The Bridge cards could be worth nearly 200 dollars per student for March and April. Plus, another 182 dollars for May and June.
