  • New Summer P-EBT Benefits Are Available!

    Even though the end of SY20-21 is just around the corner, it’s not too late to plan for the new Summer Pandemic Electronic Benefits Program (P-EBT) that your children may qualify for.

    • Summer P-EBT is a federal temporary emergency nutrition benefit that is loaded on electronic cards for families to purchase food. P-EBT is jointly implemented by the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) and the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS). Summer P-EBT benefits will be distributed in Late July. 
     
    To be eligible for Summer P-EBT, children must be approved for free or reduced prices meals in one of the following ways:
     
    • Receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) or Tribal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
    • Approved through the Application for Educational Benefits for the 2020-21 school year.
    • The Summer P-EBT program benefits are NOT contingent on a child’s learning model (hybrid or distant) in SY20-21.
     
    What you need to do to receive Summer P-EBT benefits? 
    If your family already qualifies for education benefits, then you need to do nothing further.
     
    If your family has not previously qualified for educational benefits, complete an Application for Educational Benefits prior to Tuesday, June 22, 2021.
    • Complete the online application on Skyward Family Access (link)
      • Log in, and on the left hand quick links select food service. At the top of the screen use the drop down student menu to select one of the students in your household, then select the application link and complete the free/reduced school meal application. 
    Or
    • Complete and submit the attached paper application by scanning/email to baileyd@westonka.k12.mn.us or faxing your completed application to 952-491-8083.
     
    Contact Deb Bailey, baileyd@westonka.k12.mn.us, 952-491-8088 with any questions or help you may need. In addition, the DHS website (link) is also a great source of information.
