MADISON, Wis. — The families of Wisconsin students who receive free or reduced price school meals are eligible for temporary food benefits in place of the meals, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

These benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT.

The benefit amount from March and April combined is $176.70 for each child who gets a free or reduced price school meal. The benefit amount for May and June together is $148. 20. The money will be put on a QUEST card or P-EBT card, which work similar to a debit card to buy food.

The benefits will be given out at different times, according to the DHS. The chart below shows when and how benefits will be available.
