Pandemic EBT "2.0" is coming soon and will provide food benefits to replace meals missed during the 2020–21 school year. If your student is eligible for the free and reduced lunch program, you will automatically receive a P-EBT Card. Think you might be eligible, but haven't yet applied? NOW IS THE TIME, and you can find everything you need on our Food Services page. If you're already signed up for free and reduced lunch, please make sure your address is correct in Skyward. If your address needs to be updated, please contact your student's school office. This is an important step, because your mailing address in Skyward will be what the state uses when issuing your new P-EBT Card.
