Your children may be eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program.
If your family has lost income since schools closed, you may be eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. You can find out if you are eligible and how to apply by calling 360-302-5806 or go online to Chimacum School District, Departments, Food Services to apply for Free and Reduced meals
Every eligible child may receive up to a maximum of $399 of P-EBT. Immigration status does not matter for P-EBT - it is not Basic Food and will not count in a public charge test.

If your family does not receive Basic Food, you must apply for P-EBT if you want to receive the funds. The application will be open by June 30. There are two ways to apply:
