LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — The City of Little Rock announced Tuesday that it will "expand and continue" its meal program that was launched on March 14.

"Meals are grand-and-go to limit contact and congregating," the city said in a press release. "Everyone is requested to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before picking up meals and to maintain a safe social distance of at least six feet between other people."

If you wish to go but need transportation, Rock Region Metro is available to reach one of the locations.
