Oregon was approved to provide new Pandemic EBT benefits to families whose children receive free and reduced-price school meals in Oregon.
Pandemic EBT provides families financial support to cover the cost of groceries while your children are home during school closures. This benefit is provided to ALL families whose children receive free and reduced-price school meals in Oregon. Benefits will be issued on a monthly basis to families with children enrolled in a K-12 school, school-based preschool, or school based Headstart that normally participate in the National School Lunch Program. Families can get both Pandemic EBT and prepared “grab and go” meals that schools are serving during the pandemic.
TLCS is sending a letter to all families that receive free and reduced-price school meals to notify them of this benefit.
