DCFS Secretary David Matlock was recently interviewed on Talk Louisiana with Jim Engster to defend the state’s refusal of Summer EBT dollars that equates to $70 million in federal match from a state investment of $7 million. Matlock said this summer the state will provide 1.8 million more meals than before the pandemic to children in a congregate setting, he said that’s more ideal than adding funds to an EBT card.
