The state’s Department of Health Services on Friday announced it’s reached a deal with the federal government to provide food stamp benefits to families who may have missed school lunches during the coronavirus lockdown. The new benefits should arrive later this month, or early next month. Families that already have benefit cards will see the new money added, those who do not will need to get a new card. You can find out if you’re eligible and how much you are eligible for at DHS’ website.
