Pandemic EBT

The federal government launched Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) as a new option in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. Pandemic EBT provides food benefits to eligible families in order to replace meals that students would have received, if not for disruptions to in-person instruction or school facility closure.

Pandemic EBT benefits issued in May – August of 2020 were meant to replace meals from school year 2019–20. Pandemic EBT "2.0" will provide food benefits to replace meals missed during the 2020–21 school year.
