Summer P-EBT Benefits for Eligible Families

The State of Vermont will be issuing Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) cards to help with students’ food costs over the summer months. To receive the P-EBT benefit, students must either have an approved free and reduced meal application on file or have been directly certified for free school meals. If you are not already qualified for free and reduced-price meals, you may still submit a free and reduced meal application now to see if you are eligible for the Summer P-EBT benefit. Please complete our online meal application. If you prefer, you can complete a paper application. For more information, visit our P-EBT information page.
