Meal Benefit Funds for Families- No Kid Hungry Wants You To Know
The new P-EBT program, or Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer, will provide benefits on a debit-style EBT card to help families purchase food while schools are closed.
To participate in this new program, make sure that your student(s) are signed up for free or reduced-price school meals and SNAP.
- You can apply for free or reduced-price school meals now by filling out our online school meal benefits application, regardless of immigration status. (Information is not shared with the federal government.)
- SNAP provides benefits on a debit style card to support families in purchasing food. If you think you may be eligible, we encourage you to apply for SNAP. The best way to apply is to go online to the DHR website and "create account."
Families eligible for P-EBT and enrolled in SNAP will automatically receive the additional P-EBT benefits on their SNAP card. Other families that are eligible for P-EBT and enrolled in free or reduced-price school meals will receive a new P-EBT card in the mail.
