Summer Meal Program

Posted on: May 16, 2024

If the children in your household are currently receiving F/R meals at Little Miami Local Schools – they will automatically be eligible for a new program called Summer EBT (Sun Bucks) through the State. This summer program will help families buy food during the summer when school is out. Your children will automatically be enrolled in the program, so you do not need to complete an application. If your children are not currently receiving F/R meals – a new F/R meal application can be completed to determine your eligibility through July 31st, 2024.

However, any F/R meal applications signed and submitted before July 1st will only determine Summer EBT eligibility. For SY 24/25 F/R meal benefits a new application would need to be signed and submitted by mail or at on or after July 1st 2024 per USDA rules.

Each family will receive $120 for each eligible school age child on a card that you can use to buy food during the summer at grocery stores and other authorized retailers. Summer EBT (SUN Bucks) will be mailed to you or loaded on your current EBT card in June. Not all children will receive the benefit card on the same day.
