Meal Assistance through p-EBT

P-EBT is a new program authorized by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which provides assistance to families of children eligible for free or reduced-price meals experiencing school closures. All students enrolled in Creighton are eligible for these benefits.

If a student doesn’t receive the P-EBT benefit in the first phase of benefits, the Department of Economic Security will have an online portal available in mid-May to apply for the benefit. Benefit funds will be retroactive and the full benefit will be received regardless of the application date.

You can find more information about this program at https://des.az.gov/services/basic-needs/food-assistance/arizona-p-ebt-pandemic-school-meal-replacement-benefits or call 1-844-841-3802.

About Creighton Child Nutrition & Wellness

Children spend 12 years of their youth in school developing minds, bodies, and attitudes in preparation for life. They spend six to seven hours daily in school influenced daily by the experiences that shape lives and ultimately the future. The Child Nutrition Program is an essential part of the total education provided to our students. Based on the premise that well-nourished students are better prepared to learn, the Child Nutrition & Wellness Department plays a vital role on the educational team of the school.
