Louisiana Schools are sending Pandemic-EBT cards out to the families of students who were receiving free or reduced lunches. It is a one-time amount of $285 per child. You have a year to use it. For more information, or to apply, visit their page: http://www.dcfs.louisiana.gov/page/pebt-program (hay informacion en español)

If you do not have a Social Security Number, the DCFS is working to add an option that does not require one. They will announce it on their website when it is available.


Jefferson Parish Schools are continuing to give out lunches on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for all children under 18. You do not have to bring your children in order to receive the food. They will be at the same locations as before. If you do not have a car, they have walk-up locations as well.


Alario Center (2000 Segnette Boulevard ) has drive-through COVID testing Mondays and Thursdays until 1 pm.
