Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) was created to help families cover the cost of breakfasts and lunches their children would have been eligible to receive for free or at reduced price through the National School Lunch Program.
The Department of Human Service (DHS) will leave the family P-EBT support center open for family inquiries through November 2023.
