DETROIT (AP) – Michigan has been awarded a federal grant aimed at reducing hunger among low-income children next summer when they don’t get breakfast or lunch at school.

The state expects to receive more than $800,000 to continue a project that provides food aid with a debit-style card. Michigan hopes to provide more than 10,000 students with a $60 monthly stipend.

The money comes from the U.S. Agriculture Department.
