Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020

The Ohio Department of Education announces collaboration with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services to provide the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer program through the 2020-2021 school year. This benefit is part of The Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 and will allow eligible school children to receive temporary nutrition benefits loaded on EBT (electronic benefit transfer) cards that are used to purchase food. Children who would have received free or reduced price meals under the National School Lunch Act if their schools were not closed or operating with reduced hours or attendance for at least 5 consecutive days are eligible to receive P-EBT benefits. Bay Village Schools
meets this requirement.

Your children qualify if they were approved for free or reduced price meals either in the 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 school years. If this doesn’t include you it’s not too late to apply. Even though Bay Village is currently providing free meals to all students through the end of the 2020-2021 school year, you must fill out a free and reduced meal application if you haven’t already done this for the 2019-2020 or 2020-2021 school year to receive the P-EBT.

If you were already approved for free or reduced meals prior to November 9, 2020, you do not need to fill out a new application at this time. Here is the link for the Free and Reduced Meal Application information.

Please return completed applications to Christine Klein, Bay Village High School, 29230 Wolf Road, Bay Village, Ohio 44140
