Apply by Feb. 28 for food assistance retroactive to Sept.

If your family qualifies for free or reduced-price meals, you may be eligible for financial assistance (Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer, or P-EBT) to purchase food. 

To be considered, you must apply for free or reduced-price meals for the 2020-21 school year or be approved for Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.

Families who received P-EBT benefits last summer are not automatically eligible; eligibility is based on the current school year. Applications received by Feb. 28 will be eligible for benefits retroactive to September 2020. To ensure you qualify for the most benefits, submit your application ASAP (look for “Meal Assistance” tab). Questions? Email PEBT.mde@state.mn.us
