Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) available

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is available for Minnesota families with children who miss free/reduced-price meals at school because of distance or hybrid- learning due to COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 school year.

Your child must be receiving benefits through free or reduced-price school meals, SNAP, MFIP or TANF. If you think your child may qualify, now is the time to enroll. Benefits will begin to be issued in late March 2021.
