Pandemic EBT Program
Do you need assistance buying groceries? If you had a student who was free or reduced lunch qualified during the 2019-2020 school year you can apply for Pandemic EBT which will provide a one time payment of $325 per qualifying child in food benefits. The deadline to apply has been extended.
New P-EBT updates: Deadline to apply has been extended to July 31, 2020. Benefits are now extended to Pre K students enrolled in public and charter schools.Additional funds of $100 per child will be allocated for the summer months and will be issued in August.To apply for benefits and for more information please visit www.mn.p-ebt.org.
This new, temporary program provides a lump sum food benefit(one time payment) of $325 per child to families to replace benefits they would otherwise have received during the school year.
If you have a child aged 5-18 (on September 1, 2019) you may be eligible for programs that help you buy food.
If you have children and were receiving SNAP or MFIP as of March 18, 2020, you will receive an automatic benefit on your EBT card. No further action needed.
If you weren’t receiving SNAP or MFIP but your child was receiving free or reduced lunch, you can apply for P-EBT to help buy food for your family: www.mn.p-ebt.org
