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.
