Did your child receive free or reduced-price school meals through the National School Lunch Program during the 2020–21 school year? If so, your family may be eligible for P-EBT benefits to purchase food.
Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) provides food benefits to families with enrolled students (up to 21 years of age) who temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals for the 2020-2021 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA), Texas Department of Agriculture and Texas Health and Human Services request that schools attempt to contact eligible families before the application opens June 2, 2021.
To apply, go to yourtexasbenefits.com/Learn/PEBT (application link is case-sensitive). The application opens June 2. Deadline to apply is Aug. 13, 2021.
