Any student who is eligible for free or reduced-price school meals and is enrolled into May 2023 with a school that participates in the National School Lunch Program/School Breakfast Program will receive a summer 2023 P-EBT benefit of $120. As of the 2022-2023 school year, Apollo-Ridge School District falls under the Community Eligibility Provision, therefore all students enrolled in the district are considered eligible for free meals.

  • Are home schooled  
  • Attend a cyber (virtual) school that was not established as a result of the pandemic  
  • Attend school in another state  
  • Attend a school that does not participate in NSLP
