Pandemic EBT provides food benefits of $7.10 per school day when children miss school meals due to COVID. Texas is providing P-EBT benefits for the 2021-2022 school year to eligible children.
To qualify for P-EBT benefits, children must be certified eligible for free or reduced-price school meals through the National School Lunch Program at their Texas school for the 2021-2022 school year. Receiving school meals for free does not automatically qualify a child for P-EBT.
