Additional food benefits for the 2020-21 School Year
The Minnesota Department of Education recently announced that The Continuing Appropriations Act 2021 and Other Extensions Act (P.L. 116-159) extends Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) through the end of September 2021, meaning that P-EBT will be available for the whole school year 2020-21.
Students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals may be eligible for Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) to purchase food for days they are not in the school building. To be considered, households must submit an application for free or reduced-price meals for the 2020-21 school year or be approved for Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Families who received P-EBT benefits last summer are not automatically eligible; eligibility is based on the current school year. Benefits may be retroactive to September 2020, depending on when eligibility for free or reduced-price meals is determined. To ensure you qualify for the most benefits, please submit your free/reduced meal application as soon as possible.
