Summer EBT

Hunger doesn’t take a break just because the school does. Starting in Summer 2024, If your child is eligible for free and reduced-price school meals, Summer EBT can provide you with money for groceries on a debit-type card so that they can still have enough to eat, even when school is out!

Benefits Beyond School Meals

Filling the Free and Reduced-Price Meal form benefits your family, school, and community! Your child may qualify for Summer EBT, and you can receive discounts on bus passes, internet providers, AP testing, summer camps, and more. Ask your school about the specific benefits available to you. Filling out this form also helps your school receive more funding to support your child’s learning environment and strengthen your school’s meal program, even if your child doesn’t eat meals at school.
