A new program to help families with food during the summer in Arkansas was started by Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, according to the report of Ozarks First. Families with children who are eligible for the program can get $120 for groceries for each child when school is not happening. The program was announced by Sanders back in January and now families can apply for it.

The program is to help families who need food when school meals are not available. Most families who are eligible will get the money without doing anything but some parents will have to apply. The money will come on special cards called EBT cards like those used for SNAP and will be sent to each eligible child in the mail.
