Extra Food Benefits for Kids Who Missed School

Monday, December 20th, 2021 -- 11:01 AM

(Terry Bell, WRN) Wisconsin families whose kids missed free lunches when schools were closed are getting some extra food benefits.

Wisconsin health officials plan to make-up for what was missed because of the coronavirus. Families will get just over seven-dollars a-child for every day of missed meals. The money is coming from the federal government.

The Department of Health Services says Wisconsin families who are enrolled in food stamps can expect a letter in the mail soon that lets them know when they will see their extra benefits.
