Pandemic EBT is back!
Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (Pandemic EBT) provides food benefits to eligible families to replace the meals students would have received if they had attended school in person. Pandemic EBT benefits were issued in May – August of 2020 to replace meals from the 2019–20 school year. Pandemic EBT 2.0 will provide food benefits to replace meals missed during the 2020–21 school year.
Here's what you need to do:
- Sign up for the free & reduced-price meal program.
⇒ You can check your status here.
- Be sure your current address is on file so that the benefits will be mailed to the right place. Contact your school to make changes.
Families whose students are on the free & reduced-price meals list for this school year will be eligible for P-EBT. Note that these benefits are separate from the meals they may have received during the pandemic, and all students on free & reduced in each school will qualify based on the percentage of days students were in virtual learning each month.
We encourage families to fill out a meal application each school year not only for the meal benefits, but for other benefits, such as P-EBT or the waiving of ASB or AP test fees, as well.
