National School Lunch Program Free and Reduced-Price Meal Eligibility

National School Lunch Program Free and Reduced-Price Meal Eligibility

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT)

Some Texas families who lost access to free or reduced-price meals during School Year 2021-2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic will receive P-EBT food benefits. Information about this year’s P-EBT benefits, including eligibility requirements and benefit amounts, will be released in mid-April.

One requirement for P-EBT is that students must be certified as eligible for free or reduced-price meals through the National
School Lunch Program (NSLP) at their Texas school during the 2021-2022 school year. Receiving free meals at school does not
automatically qualify a child for P-EBT.
