Louisiana will Issue Pandemic EBT Benefits to Fill the Food Gap for Students

Louisiana received federal approval to issue Pandemic EBT benefits to families of children who receive free or reduced-price school meals, but haven’t been receiving those meals due to school closures or virtual/hybrid learning schedules due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

No application is needed to receive the benefits. Schools will provide the DCFS a list of eligible students and their learning situations.

Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT, cards are expected to start reaching families over the next several weeks.
