Dear Friend,

I wanted to pass on the following information about the SNAP disaster food assistance programs in the area from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The flooding in our community has been incredibly challenging, but please know there is help available. The application opens on Thursday, Aug. 12, to those who meet the eligibility requirements.

If there’s anything my staff or I can do to assist you and your family as we tackle this crisis together, never hesitate to email me at or call (517) 373-6990.
