Kansas DCF announces food benefits going to students

This is a one time $375 payment that will be issued starting October 12

The Kansas Department for Children and Families announced today the distribution of Supplemental Pandemic EBT benefits to eligible Kansas students.

This is a one-time benefit of $375 per child that will begin to be issued starting October 12.

A news release from The Kansas Department for Children and Families says,

“All school-aged children who were eligible for free and reduced-price meals during the 2020-2021 school year through the National School Lunch program will receive the one-time benefit. This includes Head Start children who attend a Community Eligible Provision (CEP) school or were enrolled in the National School Lunch program.

Qualifying school-aged children who did not receive P-EBT for the 2020-2021 school year because they attended school in person and do not already have a Kansas Benefits Card will receive a preloaded card in the mail beginning Oct. 26. Eligible households that do not receive the benefit by Nov. 4 will need to provide additional information to DCF through the DCF Self Service Portal after Nov. 1.

The benefit can be used to purchase eligible food items from approved vendors that accept food assistance benefits like grocery stories and online at Aldi, Amazon or Wal-Mart.”
