Effective Thursday, April 23rd the Hatboro-Horsham School District will be providing free breakfast and lunch to all school-aged members of the Hatboro-Horsham Community (ages 0-18 years old). HHSD enrolled students over the age of 18 may also participate. This program expansion is made possible through federal funding, and it is no longer necessary for families to be registered for the free and reduced cost lunch program to have their children take part. We will be offering a grab and go drive through service at Keith Valley Middle School on Mondays (3 days’ worth of meals) and Thursdays (2 days’ worth of meals) between 11am-1pm. The meals are being served in the bus loop around the side of the building. Please do not get out of your car, our staff will put the meals directly in your vehicle. If you have any questions or transportation issues, please contact Jessica Oldsey at firstname.lastname@example.org .
It is not necessary to be enrolled in the free and reduced cost lunch program to participate in the meal programs through the end of the school year. If you are interested in free/reduced cost meal programs, please visit https://www.schoolcafe.com/ for details.

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Program (P-EBT) The deadline to apply for eligibility for this program was May 28.
Families of school-aged children certified as free or reduced eligible will receive $5.70 for each school-aged child in their family for each day school has been closed since March 16, 2020. Based on when we closed and the last student day of school, the benefit will include 65 days.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) is working closely with the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide the necessary information for all free and reduced eligible school-aged children. DHS will issue the P-EBT card to the households. For families with school-aged children currently directly certified through SNAP or TANF, the P-EBT benefit amount will be loaded on their existing SNAP or TANF EBT card. Families directly certified through medical assistance with qualifying income who do not otherwise have an EBT card will receive an EBT card specifically and solely for this purpose.
Payments will be processed by the end of June. Here is the link about specifics, https://www.dhs.pa.gov/providers/Providers/Pages/Coronavirus-Pandemic-EBT.aspx
