WASHINGTON — Seventeen Michigan school districts received grants from No Kid Hungry as part of the organization’s goal to ensure the state’s children remain nourished and healthy, according to a news release Wednesday.
The grants were made in partnership with the Michigan Department of Education.
“School meals are available to students across Michigan no matter if they are learning remotely or participating in a hybrid model,” said Allison Dela Cuesta, field manager for the No Kid Hungry campaign. “These grants will help ensure students in Michigan continue to get the nutrition they need to learn during this difficult time.”
