Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer.

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer 

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), will help 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 P-EBT program was re-authorized last year to cover the entire 2020-21 school year and has been approved for Pennsylvania by the USDA. Families who are eligible for this program should not need to do anything. The state will be issuing new payments starting sometime this spring on a rolling basis.  This information and more can be found on the state’s website.
