Anne Arundel County will provide additional SNAP food assistance for thousands of students this summer

June 1, 2022

Following the expiration of a federal summer food assistance program started during the pandemic, Anne Arundel County will spend $1.5 million to continue the program this summer as students are out of school and the free school lunch program becomes less accessible. County Executive Steuart Pittman made the announcement Tuesday that Anne Arundel County would spend the maximum amount allowed to ensure that all recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program with children ages 5 to 17 can get an additional $100 a year of funds on their Electronic Benefit Transfer, or EBT, cards — $30 in June, July and August each and $10 in December.
