People who got a ticket after waiting in long lines Friday for flooding assistance are now eligible for food aid this week.

Thousands affected by this spring's flooding met Friday's 1 p.m. deadline to apply for food assistance. Long lines formed in north suburban Skokie and in the west Pullman neighborhood on Chicago's South Side.

Recipients must have a ticket and live in areas affected by April floods to receive the assistance.
