Benefits of $400+ per Child who Receives Free or Reduced Meals during the School Year
Families who are eligible for free or reduced school meals will receive over $400 of SNAP credit per child enrolled in a federally approved school lunch program. KiwiKids is an approved program.
Children who have temporarily lost access to free or reduced price school meals due to the COVID-19 pandemic related school closures are eligible for Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) SNAP allotments equal to the daily reimbursement ($5.70) multiplied by the average number of school closure days in the month for each eligible child in the household.Learn more here.
Families can receive this credit even though they are still receiving the free daily meals currently offered by KiwiKids.
What is the Next Step?
If you already receive SNAP benefits: This money should have been already added to your account. If you did not receive these funds please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are eligible for free or reduced meals but have not to date been registered for KiwiKids in-school meal service: You can still sign up now and receive these benefits. Your child must attend a school with a KiwiKids lunch program option. Please email email@example.com to register.
If you would like to collaborate with neighbors and have one family pick up meals for a few, please let us know by filling out this form for the Large Meal Pickup (more than 15 meals). This will both help production run faster and smoother.
