The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 provides temporary benefits, 
referred to as Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT), to families of school-aged children who would receive free or reduced-priced meals if school was in session.

For each day school is closed, families of school-aged children certified as free or reduced eligible will receive the equivalent of the free high rate for lunch and the severe need rate for breakfast. Specifically, a family will receive $5.70 for each eligible school-aged child in their family for each day school has been closed since March 16, 2020.

If your child received free or reduced priced meals at LVA this school year, you will automatically receive these benefits. If your situation has changed and your family may now qualify to receive free or reduced priced meals, please make sure that you complete an application.
