Second Chance To Apply For P-EBT Benefits
Louisiana is giving families another chance to apply for free and reduced-price school meals. If your children missed breakfast and lunch when schools closed due to the 2019-2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you still have time to apply for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer program (P-EBT).
The P-EBT benefits will be retroactive and cover the start of statewide school closures from March 16 through the end of the 2019-20 academic year (50 school days). The second application wave is open for eligible families, who did not receive benefits. The new application window is September 8 – September 29 from 8:00am to 5:00pm. For more info on eligibility and benefits, go to the P-EBT website.
