Second round of Pandemic EBT to start late-March for first part of 2020-21 school year

OLYMPIA — Many families in Washington state will soon have another round of benefits to help buy groceries. Called Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT, these food benefits are available to families with children who have been home from school due to COVID-19 closures or reduced hours and who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. The benefits — ranging from $25 to $123 per child per month, depending on the learning model of the child’s school — will come loaded onto a special P-EBT card mailed automatically to each eligible child. The next round of P-EBT benefits covers September 2020 through January 2021. Learn more about this round of P-EBT at the DSHS Medium site.
