Households with children that previously relied on free and reduced-price school meals before districts closed statewide will now receive about $420 per student in food assistance. The state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance is teaming with the NYSDOH - New York State Health Department and the New York State Education Department to deliver more than $880 million in benefits to roughly 2.1 million children throughout the state who were receiving free and reduced-price meals before all school districts were closed starting on March 16. New Yorkers will receive the benefits automatically on their existing EBT card if they are enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, receiving Temporary Assistance benefits or Medicaid. Families not enrolled in these programs will be mailed a temporary EBT card along with instructions for activating the card and accessing their assistance. "For many low-income families across the state, free and reduced-price school meals provided a critical stop-gap that allowed them to avoid food insecurity," Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance Commissioner Mike Hein said. "This temporary program will bring them some measure of relief by ensuring that parents have additional help purchasing healthy, nutritious food for their school-aged children during these unprecedented times."

Some more talent in our community to share! Our friend Kate Gladstone is gardening at home. The photos show 8 days of growth in the sprouts and vines!

"While my husband and I are staying at home, I’ve started an indoor garden and sprout farm. (We eat the sprouts, and save the biggest few of some kinds to plant.) So far, we’ve alternated among peas, lentils, radishes, and a few other things that are edible as sprouts and otherwise. (Fun fact: every part of a pea plant or radish plant is edible raw and/or cooked.) At the moment, the peas are the prettiest, so I’m attaching a photo of peas sprouting in a sprouting-cup and another photo of pea plants growing in a pot."
