EUGENE, Ore. -- Families and student who had access to free meals through a school participating in the National School Lunch Program received $50,294,400 in pandemic EBT benefits.

According to Dan Haun, Self-Sufficiency Programs Director, this was the first time Oregon implemented pandemic EBT benefits.

Oregon was approved in May and in June the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) released the funds.

The next release of funds will begin in mid-June and continue through July and is for eligible students who do not receive SNAP benefits and any students who were not identified on the first release who are in a SNAP household.

If families are currently receiving SNAP benefits, they will see the P-EBT benefits on their Oregon Trail Card.
