KSD To Provide Free School Meals For 2021-22 School Year
The Kennewick School District will continue to offer free meals to all students through the 2021-22 school year as an extension of a federal waiver program that began during the pandemic. The extension of the program ensures students have continued access to free meals through June 30, 2022, regardless of families’ ability to pay.
However, it's still important to fill out the free- and reduced-price meal application.
Information collected as part of the application can help students access reduced-fee benefits and can help increase funding for before- and after-school academic programs, guidance and college counselors, fee waivers for college applications and admissions tests, and more.
Pandemic EBT (P-EBT)
The final benefit payments were distributed in September 2021 for August 2021. The district office and your child's school cannot respond to parent questions or concerns regarding benefits. If you have questions about the program or when you will receive your benefits, please call (833) 518-0282 or visit the DSHS website.
If you need food assistance or other resources, please call 211.
