New York State is providing Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) food benefits to all households with children who are eligible to receive free school lunch under the National School Lunch Act and whose school was closed or operating with reduced in-school attendance due to COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Issuance of the food benefit will commence in June and continue for several months, due to the large number of eligible children and schools participating in the National School Lunch Program across the state. If your child(ren) is eligible and has not received P-EBT benefit by November 2021, you may fill out the P-EBT Information Form.
If your child(ren) is newly enrolled in their school and/or you believe they qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, please contact your child’s school to ask about the program requirements.
If you have misplaced a P-EBT Food Benefit card issued to your child[ren], you may order a replacement card by calling 1-888-328-6399 If your child[ren] received P-EBT benefits on a Medicaid card and you need to order a replacement NYS Medicaid card or select a PIN, go to otda.ny.gov/SNAP-COVID-19/P-EBT-Medicaid-Card-PIN-Instructions.asp for more information.
Once you have set up a PIN to access your P-EBT food benefits, you can check your family’s P-EBT food benefits balance by visiting www.connectebt.com or by calling 1-888-328-6399.
For additional information please visit NYSOTDA P-EBT Benefits Information Page.
Breakfast will be available for students in kindergarten through grade 12 who wish to participate.
Federal regulations require schools and institutions to serve meals at no extra charge to those children whose disability restricts their diets in such a way that they cannot fully participate in the food service program without some modification to the foods offered on the scheduled menu. You must request the special meals from the school and provide the school with medical certification from a medical doctor. Contact the Director of Food Services, at 842-4010, extension 450.
