All Pulaski County students qualify a $313.50 benefit:

School closures due to the COVID-19 state of emergency led to the loss of free and reduced-price school meals for many Kentucky children. These children now can receive help from a program jointly offered by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services and Kentucky Department of Education.

The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program provides a benefits card families can use to buy food to replace free school breakfast and lunch while schools are closed. Program enrollment is automatic for children already receiving SNAP (formerly known as food stamps), TANF, Kinship Care and Medicaid.

Households with children not enrolled in these assistance programs must apply for P-EBT benefits at https://benefind.ky.gov/. Applications will be taken from June 1, 2020 through June 30, 2020.
