Louisiana will issue Pandemic EBT benefits to fill the food gap for students

Lincoln Parish Residents: Louisiana received federal approval to issue Pandemic EBT benefits to families of children who receive free or reduced-price school meals, but haven’t been receiving those meals due to school closures or virtual/hybrid learning schedules due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

No application is needed to receive the benefits. Schools will provide the DCFS a list of eligible students and their learning situations.

Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT, cards are expected to start reaching families over the next several weeks.
