Take-out Meals for Remote Learning Students
Students attending schools remotely or their parents/guardians may pick up a free breakfast and lunch at most DOE school buildings. Take-out meals for students will be available on school days only from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Visit the take-out meals page to find a take-out meal location near you.
Support School Funding
You do not need to apply for your child to receive meals. However, we do ask families to complete Family Income Inquiry Form(Open external link), which helps schools receive money for their programs. Your school will send a copy of this form home with your child, or you can get it from your school’s main office.
Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) Food Benefits
The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) is a Federal program to provide food benefits to children who miss the opportunity to receive school meals due to pandemic-related school closures. These benefits will take the form of funds on electronic benefit transfer (EBT cards) which can be used in the same manner as SNAP (food stamp) cards.
- Benefits will automatically be issued to all eligible students, program enrollment is not required.
- For students whose households receive SNAP, Temporary Assistance or Medicaid benefits, P-EBT benefits will be loaded to those household accounts.
- For all other students, new cards will be issued to each student specifically for P-EBT benefits and mailed directly to students’ home addresses.
