Please read this information carefully if you think your family may qualify. Disregard if you are not eligible for the free or reduced-price school breakfast/lunch program.
Recently, the United States Department of Agriculture approved P-EBT benefits distribution to all Ohio free or reduced-price meal eligible students to extend into the summer of 2021. This includes students who attended school in person in Maumee as well as all MVP students.
The P-EBT program provides families who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, formerly known as food stamps. The daily benefit amount is $6.82. This means that for this summer, each free or reduced-price meal eligible student can receive $375 dollars (equivalent to 55 days of benefits).
