Families with children attending one of the many Alachua County schools that provide free school meals through the National School Lunch Program’s Community Eligibility Provision are eligible for Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT). Families with children not at these schools but who are eligible for free meals are eligible for P-EBT. The benefit will be $5.70/day per student, retroactive to when school initially closed. See the FAQ at this link for details: https://www.myflfamilies.com/covid19/docs/PEBT%20FAQ.pdf

P-EBT provides nutritional resources to families who have lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to school closures. Families will receive money on a new or existing EBT card to help fill the school meals gap.
