Food Resources

 

  • This year, universal free school meals will be available for all Massachusetts students.
  • We know that buying groceries right now can be very stressful. We encourage you to check your eligibility and apply for SNAP.  SNAP is like P-EBT and provides monthly money on a card to buy food.  You can buy food in many stores or online at select retailers. 
  • P-EBT was temporarily created to replace meals during the pandemic while schools were closed to in-person learning. Based on federal rules, students attending school in-person are not eligible for P-EBT. More information will be shared for this school year when available. Keep your P-EBT card.

 

Am I eligible for SNAP/ how much will I get?
Eligibility is based on your household’s size and income.  During the COVID emergency, you will get more SNAP money.  For example:

Household Size

Your Income (Before Taxes)

Monthly SNAP Money

2

$2,903

$459

3

$3,660

$658

4

$4,417

$835

 

Can I get SNAP if I am an immigrant?

Like P-EBT, using SNAP does not impact you or your kid's immigration status and is not part of the “public charge” test. If you are not a US citizen, it is safe for you to get SNAP for an eligible family member (like your US citizen child).
