Pandemic EBT 2020-2021: Food Benefits for Students Learning at Home

Dear SDSM Parents and Guardians,

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is organizing and preparing to provide extra food benefits for eligible students participating in Virtual Learning throughout  the 2020-2021 School Year. They are gathering eligibility data from Wisconsin Public Assistance Programs and Wisconsin School Districts to provide benefits to families who may be eligible.

As you know, eligibility for Free & Reduced Priced Meals must be reviewed and renewed each new school year.  This school year, many who may be eligible for Free & Reduced Priced Meals did not renew eligibility or apply because school meals have been provided at no cost for all SDSM students through Pandemic Relief Funds.

If you think your family may be eligible for Free & Reduced Priced Meals and Pandemic EBT Benefits, you must update your eligibility and should apply as soon as possible!  Please apply using our online application, . Applications are processed within one day in most cases. Other application information and 2020-2021 Income Guidelines are available on our website.

If you have any questions regarding your eligibility status for this school year, please contact Donna Mildebrandt at or (414) 766-5023.
