Whiteville City Schools
Pandemic - Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT)
- North Carolina has been approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to begin a new program that will help families who have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Pandemic - Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Program will help families purchase food for their children.
- Whiteville City Schools is a CEP- participating school. All students who attend a CEP-participating school will receive P-EBT benefits. The EBT card will be mailed to the household. (The CEP is a nutrition program under the National School Lunch Act.)
- P-EBT eligible families already receiving Food and Nutrition Services (FNS), sometimes known as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, will receive P-EBT benefits on their existing EBT card.
- P-EBT eligible families not already enrolled in FNS will receive a P-EBT card in the mail in the next few weeks. Families who receive a P-EBT card will first receive a letter from the NCDHHS explaining how to activate and use their card. The P-EBT card may be used to purchase food at EBT authorized retailers, including most major grocery stores.
- Families with one child will receive $370.50 in P-EBT benefits provided over two installments; the first installment will account for a higher percentage of the $370.50 as it will cover the school closure days in March and April 2020. The second installment will cover May through June 12, 2020. Families with multiple children will receive benefits on a single card, if possible, based on the number of eligible children in the household.
- The P-EBT Program will help supplement meals for children provided by schools and community organizations. Schools and community organizations will continue to offer and families may continue to participate in free meal programs for children during the period of unanticipated school closures due to COVID-19; these include grab-and-go or curbside meals at schools or community organizations or meals distributed to students by a yellow school bus or other distribution methods. Families can text FOODNC to 877-877 to find local meal sites. The service is also available in Spanish by texting COMIDA to 877-877. Families are encouraged to continue utilizing feeding programs at the local schools.
