FREE School Meals for ALL students!


Free meals for all students this coming school year

The United States Department of Agriculture has extended pandemic flexibilities providing free school meals to all students at all schools through the 2021-2022 school year.

  • No free/reduced meal application is necessary to receive free breakfast and lunch
  • All students at all Benicia USD schools are automatically eligible to receive free meals


Coming soon, Summer 2021 P-EBT

P-EBT provides families of eligible children additional funds to purchase food during the summer while school is no longer in session. The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 amends the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to extend the Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program through the summer of 2021. P-EBT is administered by the California Department of Social Services (CDSS), in collaboration with the California Department of Education (CDE)

Applications for Free/Reduced Meal Benefits available at our website

Although an application is not required for students to receive free meals during school year 2021-2022, the application will be available to determine student eligibility for P-EBT benefits, district eligibility of federal grants, and student eligibility for various discounted services such as advanced placement testing, internet service provider discounts, etc.
