Summer Food Benefits for Kids

The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) helps families cover the cost of breakfasts and lunches their children would have been eligible to receive for free or at reduced price through the National School Lunch Program. The American Rescue Plan authorizes the continued distribution of P-EBT benefits over the summer months, to assist households with children in child care settings.

Families with children under 6 who are enrolled in SNAP will automatically receive the $375 benefit starting in late Sept./early Oct. 2021. Families who aren’t currently enrolled but are eligible for SNAP can enroll up until Aug. 31, 2021, and still receive the benefit.
