Households Must Apply for Free* or Reduced-Price Lunch by May 6, 2022 to be Eligible for 2021-22 Pandemic EBT
*During the 2021-22 school year, all students, regardless of income status, can receive one free breakfast and one free lunch each day they attend school. However, this does not qualify students for P-EBT, nor does it automatically give students free-reduced status.
P-EBT provides funds to families eligible for Free/Reduced-Price meals whose children had COVID-related absences at qualifying schools during the 2021-22 school year. Students qualify for P-EBT funds if they are eligible for free/reduced lunch. For additional information about Pandemidic-EBT go to www.jobs.utah.gov/covid19/pebt/ .
STEP 1 – Click on the Free & Reduced Lunch Application link below (link located below the red apple) to submit a new application. If you have already qualified for free or reduced benefits during the 2021-22 school year, you have already completed this step.
- P-EBT funds will be paid out at $7.10 per day (per student) for COVID-related absences.
- P-EBT funds will be paid automatically for any school-wide closures determined by the district- you do not need to submit anything for these district wide closures.
- For all other COVID-related absences, go to Step 2.
STEP 2 – Print and fill out the Pandemic EBT Parent Application if your student has had absences related to COVID. You will only report absences specific to your child. Do not report days district-wide closures took place. Reported absences will be verified.
FREE & REDUCED LUNCH APPLICATIONS
Please complete only one application per family. We encourage you to fill out the application online at applyforlunch.com. However, if you need to fill out a paper copy of the application, please contact your school office.
Federal eligibility for Free and Reduced Meals changes each school year. Because of these annual changes, a new application must be submitted each year.
Additional questions about the Free and Reduced Meals Application can be directed to Kim Carter at 385-646-5506.
**You may also qualify for a school fee waiver. For information and to complete the application, click here or contact the administration office where your student attends school.**
