Summer Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer file submission reminder

6/16/2021

Schools and districts that participated in the National School Lunch Program, Seamless Summer Option or Summer Food Service Program in school year 2020-2021 may submit their free or reduced-price meal eligible students for a special summer Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT). The summer P-EBT is not dependent on a student’s remote education status. All free or reduced-price meal eligible students qualify for the benefit.

Schools and districts must submit their data through a secure data link within the P-EBT portal. This is a separate initiative and process from the school year 2020-2021 P-EBT provided for remote education days. The portal now is open for summer P-EBT data collection and will close on June 17 at 5 p.m.
