Nutrition Resources

Update on Nutrition Resources:

As the new school year starts, families may have questions about the availability of P-EBT and school meals. P-EBT was temporarily created to replace meals during the pandemic while schools were closed to in-person learning. Based on federal rules, students attending school in-person are not eligible for P-EBT. Universal free school meals are available for all Massachusetts students this school year.
More information will be shared for this school year when available. Districts are asked to please advise families to keep their P-EBT card if they have one. Districts can also share that many families who were eligible for P-EBT are eligible for SNAP. Households can find information and apply at
