This benefit is for Washington children in grades K-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which is used like a debit card to buy groceries. Learn more by visiting the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) website.
