P-EBT Food Benefits
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 authorized the payment of P-EBT food benefits to households with children who would have received free school lunches under the National School Lunch Act, if not for a school closure. These temporary food benefits are to help cover the cost of meals children would otherwise would have received at school, regardless if a student participated in the COVID-19 emergency meal program.
 
Child Nutrition requested information for all students in our district since we are under the Community Eligibility Program (CEP). Because every student receives a free breakfast and lunch, all students should be receiving a card.
