FOOD SERVICES AND AVAILABLE BENEFITS
SUMMER MEALS TO RESUME JULY 7TH!
Bulk meal distributions will resume July 7th and continue for four weeks. Distributions will occur every Tuesday from 10:30am-11:30am in front of the school (3201 S 4th Street, Union Gap). The meal distributions will include 7 breakfasts and 7 lunches for each child aged 1-18. These meals are FREE and available to all children, not only Union Gap students. Pick up for meals will only be offered in front of the school due to being able to keep meals/milk cold.
Parents can pick up meals for their children not present at the time of pick up and will be provided a waiver information sheet.
Bulk Meal Distribution Dates: July 7th, July 14th, July 21st, and July 28th

PANDEMIC EBT (P-EBT)
All Union Gap Students are eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) - and emergency school meals program. P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for some of the cost of meals while school was closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades K-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries. Because all UGSD students receive free breakfast and lunch, all UGSD students are eligible regardless of income. If you do not already receive benefits, you will need to apply on or after June 30. If you receive food assistance benefits already, the funds should appear on your EBT on June 30.
