Tiger Beat April 6th, 2023
Retroactive P-EBT for Summer 2022 will be delivered to households in April!
If your child attended Bandon schools last school year, they are automatically eligible for Pandemic-EBT benefits as Bandon School District offered free meals for all students under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) in 2022.
All eligible children will get a new EBT card in the mail, whether they are new to P-EBT or have received P-EBT benefits in the past. Each child within the household who is eligible to receive P-EBT benefits will receive their own letter in the mail before receiving their benefits.
If a child is receiving SNAP, P-EBT benefits will not be issued onto the EBT card (also called Oregon Trail card) associated with the SNAP case. The household will receive a separate P-EBT card in the mail.
For example:If there are four eligible children in one household, the household will receive four separate letters and four P-EBT cards (one letter and one EBT card addressed to each child).

Cell Phone Policy
Valley Flora wanted to alert you to a few new programs that we - and other NW farms - are spearheading in in order to make fresh, local produce more accessible to low income families in our community. We’re trying to get the word out as widely as possible. If you have a spot to hang a poster (attached below), or room for a mention in your next newsletter, that would be wonderful! We are happy to provide you with a color-printed poster, just let us know! Also, please feel free to forward this email to anyone in your networks who would benefit from knowing about these programs.
- Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB): a program that helps low-income Oregonians purchase more fruits and vegetables while supporting local, family farms. Folks with SNAP benefits can purchase one of our farm’s community supported agriculture (CSA) shares and DUFB will provide 1:1 matching funds (they pay half the cost of the CSA with SNAP and DUFB covers the other half). It's a win-win that strengthens our community by providing better access to fresh, healthy food while helping local farmers earn a living.
- CSA Sliding Scale: our farm is offering a voluntary sliding scale payment system in order to make our food more accessible to everyone in the community. It’s been a beautiful example of community - and humanity - at its best.
