New food benefits for school-aged kids!

Summer EBT (S-EBT) is a new grocery benefits program that starts this summer. It helps families buy food for their school-aged children during summer when school is out.

The primary source of information about S-EBT is the Oregon Summer EBT website, which will be updated with details about the next issuance as they are finalized. Oregon families may also get more information about S-EBT by reaching out to the DHS office who’ve assisted them with their SNAP benefits.
