NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Parents in our state may soon get a new card to help buy food for your kids. 

Tennessee is extending its Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer, or P-EBT program into the fall semester.  

Families who qualify for free or reduced lunches will get the card in the mail. 

The card gives parents $5.86 per student for each school day because of the pandemic in July, August and September.
