Pandemic-EBT

Does your child receive free or reduced-price school meals during the school year, or do you believe you may now qualify based on a recent income change? Pandemic-EBT, or P-EBT, can help you feed your family while schools are closed. You will receive a card with approximately $279 per eligible child that you can use to purchase food at stores that accept EBT. If you already receive SNAP benefits and are eligible for P-EBT, these funds will automatically load into your existing account. If you do not currently receive SNAP benefits, apply here for P-EBT today: https://www.colorado.gov/cdhs/p-ebt

Good for Kids; Good for Parents!

For parents with busy morning schedules, it’s sometimes difficult to ensure that kids are eating a healthy breakfast before they head off to school.  Children often aren’t ready to eat right after waking up, and it can be challenging to find nutritious breakfast foods they like.  Some kids refuse breakfast at home and discover that they’re hungry when they arrive at school.  The School Breakfast Program provides a great option for parents.

 

As you may know, a great breakfast is offered for all students at school.  Studies have proven that kids who eat breakfast achieve higher academic scores, are more alert in class, visit the school nurse less often, and are better behaved in school.  If morning meals are difficult for your family, let the School Breakfast Program help you out!
