    Because COVID-19 closed our schools, your children may be eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program.

    P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for the cost of meals while school was closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades k-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries.

    If your family has lost income since schools closed, you may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. You can find out if you are eligible and how to apply by calling 206-463-8534 or go online to vashonsd.org/Page/2516 before Friday, June 26, 2020.

    Every eligible child may receive up to a maximum of $399 of P-EBT. Immigration status does not matter for P-EBT – it is not Basic Food and will not count in a public charge test. P-EBT is intended to replace meals missed while schools closed due to COVID-19. Children are allowed to get free meals from school and community sites and get P-EBT at the same time – they are separate programs.

    If your family does not receive Basic Food, you must apply for P-EBT if you want to receive the funds. The application will be open by June 30, 2020. There are two ways to apply:

    See the attached flyer for more information about P-EBT.

    We want to make sure all of our students stay healthy and grow strong.


    Debido a que la COVID-19 cerró nuestras escuelas, sus hijos pueden ser elegibles para recibir asistencia alimentaria, llamada Transferencia Electrónica de Beneficios Pandémicos (Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer o Pandemic EBT, P-EBT): Programa de Comidas Escolares de Emergencia.

    La P-EBT proporciona a las familias fondos para compensar el costo de las comidas mientras la escuela estaba cerrada.  Este beneficio es para niños de Washington en los grados entre K y 12 que reciben comidas escolares gratuitas o a precio reducido. Estos beneficios estarán en una tarjeta de Transferencia Electrónica de Beneficios (EBT) que se utiliza como una tarjeta débito para comprar comestibles.

    Si su familia ha perdido ingresos desde que cerraron las escuelas, puede ser elegible para recibir comidas escolares gratuitas o a precio reducido. Puede averiguar si es elegible y cómo presentar una solicitud llamando al [número de teléfono del distrito escolar] o ingresando en línea a school district webpage [página web del distrito escolar].

    Cada niño elegible puede recibir hasta un máximo de $399 de P-EBT. El estado de inmigración no importa para la P-EBT: no es Basic Food (Alimentos Básicos) y no contará en una prueba de cargo público. La P-EBT está destinada a reemplazar las comidas perdidas mientras las escuelas cerraron debido a la COVID-19. A los niños se les permite recibir comidas gratuitas de los sitios escolares y comunitarios y obtener la P-EBT al mismo tiempo; son programas separados.

    Si su familia no recibe Basic Food, debe solicitar la P-EBT si desea recibir los fondos. La solicitud estará abierta antes del 30 de junio. Hay dos formas de solicitarla:

    • Visite: www.WashingtonConnection.org, o
    • Llame al Departamento de Servicios Sociales y de Salud (Department of Social and Health Services, DSHS) al 877-501-2233

    Consulte el folleto adjunto para obtener más información sobre la P-EBT.

    Queremos asegurarnos de que todos nuestros estudiantes se mantengan saludables y crezcan fuertes.
