School closures have cut students off from free and reduced-price school meals programs, with responses varying by district. One way to fill this gap is via temporary Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) program. States submit a plan to implement the program, which gives a benefit to families to cover the cost of missed school meals due to coronavirus. Michigan and Rhode Island’s plans were the first to be approved by the USDA although several other states have also submitted plans and are awaiting approval. #covid-19
