PEBT provides food benefits to families with enrolled students up to 21 years of age who temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals for the 2020–2021 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The deadline to apply is August 13, 2021. If anyone has any questions they may contact the Los Fresnos CISD Child Nutrition Office at 254-5055 during normal school business hours or call the P-EBT Call Center at 833-442-1255, Monday through Friday 8 a.m.- 6 p.m. Central time.
The federal benefit helps provide for the approximately 3.7 million eligible, low-income children in Texas who lost access to free and reduced-cost meals when schools first shut down during the pandemic. This time, the benefit could provide up to $1,200 per student, depending on the number of days most students at their school received remote instruction during the past school year.
