Why are students at some schools automatically eligible, while others are not?

Posted by:

Students who attend the following schools are automatically eligible for P-EBT benefits: Alhambra Preschool Academy, Barcelona, Carol G. Peck, Cordova, Granada East, Granada West, James W. Rice, Madrid, Sevilla East, Choice Learning Academy, Westwood, and Valencia. This is due to these schools being approved for a special meal provision this year. If your student was enrolled in one of these schools in May 2023, then you will not need to do anything to receive the P-EBT benefits. It will automatically be sent to you through DES, provided your student's school has your current address and parent/guardian information.

Students who attend Alhambra Traditional School, Catalina Ventura, Global Academy of Phoenix, and Sevilla West MAY be eligible for P-EBT benefits if they have been approved for free/reduced meals with a 22-23 meal application by May 26, 2023. If you are unsure whether or not this applies to you, call the Child Nutrition Department at 602-336-2980. You may submit a meal application at family.titank12.com. Click on "Apply for Meals Today."
