Meal Services

Emergency School Meals Funding Available

Due to school closures related to COVID-19, your children may be eligible for food assistance called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program. This program is administered by the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS).

P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for the cost of school lunches missed during the school closures. This benefit is for ALL children between the ages of 5 and 18 in Washington who receive free or reduced-price school meals. DSHS will use a family’s free or reduced-price meal status to confirm eligibility for P-EBT upon receipt of an application.

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

Every eligible child may receive up to a maximum of $399 of P-EBT. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries. Immigration status does not matter for P-EBT – it is not Basic Food and will not count in a public charge test. Children are allowed to get free meals from school and community sites and get P-EBT at the same time – they are separate programs.

Role of the Issaquah School District

If your student(s) are not currently qualified for free or reduced-price meals you may fill out an application by June 30 here: https://issaquah.strataapps.com/ or by contacting the Food Service office at (425) 837-5064 to have a paper application mailed.

We want to make sure all of our students stay healthy and grow strong.
