Students In 16 School Districts Receiving Summer Food Assistance
To ensure children have access to well-balanced meals throughout the summer, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program, in collaboration with the Michigan Department of Education, is participating in the 2018 Summer EBT for Children (SEBTC) program. Funded through a grant from the U.S Department of Agriculture, the program helps WIC-eligible families feed their children nutritious meals during the summer months when school meals are not readily available. Eligible students from 16 school districts throughout the state will receive $30 of nutritious food per month for the three months of summer. The program began June 1 and benefits expire Sept. 3, 2018.
