Summer EBT, branded as Indiana SUN Bucks, is a new and permanent program to provide money to eligible households with school-aged children to purchase food during the summer. Please note, LCSC School Staff and the LCSC Food Service Department do not have access to personal SUN Bucks/P-EBT information or funds.

    Participating families will receive $120 for each eligible child on a card that you can use to buy food during the summer at grocery stores, farmers markets, and other authorized retailers. SUN Bucks will be mailed to you at the most recent address we have on file for your household. SUN Bucks benefits will be available for use by June 1, 2024, and must be used no later than 122 days after card issuance, after which the benefits will no longer be available.

    If your address has changed this year, please contact the online SUN Bucks help form to ensure your benefit card is sent to the right address. https://indianasunbucks.com. Applications on this webpage will be accepted until Friday, August 16, 2024 in order to get benefits for this summer. If you need assistance filling out an application, or if you have questions, submit a ticket to the online help form: https://idoe.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portal/11.
