Nutrition Assistance Available for Summer

Nutrition Assistance Available for Summer
In the American Rescue Plan, passed in March 2021, Congress extended the Pandemic-EBT program to include the summer months. Through P-EBT, eligible school children receive temporary emergency nutrition benefits loaded on EBT cards that are used to purchase food. The program will provide money on a new or existing EBT card to help fill the summer meals gap left by the inability to access meals during the summer.
