    Student Meal Support During Summer

    Seattle Public Schools is committed to providing meal service to all SPS students during this pandemic. The district has school sites that serve as a hub for student meal support and provide sack breakfasts and lunches prepared by our central kitchen.

    Pandemic EBT: Emergency School Meals Program

    Students who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school will get extra food benefits through Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Lunch Program, or P-EBT benefits. P-EBT benefits help families in Washington buy food when school is closed.

    Apply for P-EBT by visiting or by calling 877-501-2233. Applications for P-EBT must be completed by August 31, 2020 or before the start of the 2020-21 school year — whichever is later.

    SPS School Sites

    Seattle Public Schools has 26 schools that are serving as a hub for student meal support during the closure and summer. These schools provide sack meals prepared by our central kitchen for all Seattle Public Schools students Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. for the duration of the school closure and during the summer.

    Reheatable Meals by FareStart: Monday through Friday FareStart is providing reheatable prepared meals available for all families to pick up at these school sites.

    Weekend Student Meal Support: Meal support for weekends, provided by the Backpack Brigade and Food For Schools, provides non-perishable food items such as canned goods, snacks, juice, etc., is available for all families in need to pick up on Fridays.
