Important Information About Your Child’s School Meals
If you have a child in kindergarten through twelfth grade in your household who was receiving free or reduced-price meals while in school, your child is eligible for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits as a result of the school closure.
We understand with Springboro Schools remaining closed throghout the month of April this is going to put an extra burden on some families for food. Please know that the SCAC is here to help all families that are in need during this time. We understand there are a lot of families that have not used a food pantry before, and this can be uncomfortable at first. It’s safe to say that this is a first for almost all of us.
Also, the Springboro Community Assistance Center (SCAC) will provide further details on their Facebook page. Click here to view the SCAC Facebook Page.

Thank you to the City of Springboro, Springboro First United Methodist Church, Springboro Eagles, the district's Food Services Dept., as well as the Springboro Community Assistance Center (SCAC) for making this possible.
Governor DeWine announced that the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (OJFS) has received approval from the United States Department of Agriculture for its Pandemic EBT plan. The Pandemic EBT program was included in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020.
The approval will allow OJFS to distribute SNAP benefits to 850,000 students across Ohio who relied on free or reduced-price meal programs when school was in session to have access to a hot, nutritious meal. The benefits will be mailed directly to students, and families do not need to apply to be eligible.
Families will receive approximately $300 to purchase healthy and nutritious foods to feed their children. These benefits amount to more than $250 million that will go to our grocery stores and other eligible retailers.
