Dear Austin ISD Families,
If your household experienced a reduction in income after June 30, 2021 or did not complete a household application in SY 2020-2021, now is the time to complete the household school meal application to determine eligibility for the Summer P-EBT benefit. Submit the attached form to AISD’s Food Service department at Schoolcafe@austinisd.org before 11:59 p.m.(CST) August 27, 2021, to demonstrate possible eligibility for Summer P-EBT benefits.
Summer PEBT provides a $375 to supplement a family’s food budget during the covered summer period with a EBT benefit card. Eligible families are encouraged to demonstrate eligibility for a one-time summer Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefit by submitting the household school meal application before August 28, 2021. P-EBT for the 2020–2021 school year (August 2020 to June 2021) was for families with children who were certified for free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program and families with children born after Aug. 1, 2014, who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) food benefits. Eligibility for these benefits has already been established and cannot be updated at this time.
You can contact the AISD central food service office at 512-414-0251.
