P-EBT in Massachusetts Continues

The Pandemic-Electronic Benefits Transfer program has helped millions of Americans across the country to meet and buy their daily needs, especially during the wake of the pandemic. It is their one source of assistance to ensure that they have food to serve at the table.

In the official website of the State of Massachusetts, the Healey-Driscoll administration announced that the P-EBT program will continue in the state. This will cover the school year 2022-2023 and the summer of 2023.  This is to increase food security and to have reduced-price school meals through the United States Department of Agriculture’s National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

State Authorities Released Official Statements

According to a published article in WWLP, Health and Human Services Secretary Kate Walsh said, “Massachusetts continues to lead in food security through initiatives that directly provide families with the funds to buy groceries that meet their nutritional and cultural needs. Not only does this P-EBT plan approval promote food security for nearly 500,000 students and their families, but it also supports our local grocery stores, corner stores, farmers, and their employees.”

Meanwhile, Education Secretary Patrick Tutwiler also added that “Food security is essential for the health and wellbeing of our students—and that need doesn’t end just because the school year does. I’m grateful that DTA and DESE are able to work with Massachusetts’ local school districts to connect families and communities to these critical food resources this summer.”

Moreover, those who are eligible for the extended P-EBT will receive retroactive payment on June 25 for COVID-19-related school absences that happened between September 2022 through May 11, 2023.
