An update on pandemic-EBT relief

New York State is again 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 during the 2020-2021 school year.

Distribution of the benefit began in June 2021 and will continue for several months.

Most eligible public-school students can expect to receive their first benefit beginning in late-July. If your child is eligible and has still not received P-EBT benefit by October 2021, please fill out the P-EBT Information Form.

Here’s some more information about the benefit:

  • If you have misplaced a P-EBT Food Benefit card issued to your child, you may order a replacement card by calling 1-888-328-6399.
  • Once you have set up a PIN, you can check benefits balance by visiting www.connectebt.com or calling 1-888-328-6399.
  • For more information visit NYSOTDA P-EBT Benefits Information Page.

The Liberty Central School District is not affiliated with this program. All questions should be directed to the NYSOTDA P-EBT Benefits Information Page or by calling 1-888-328-6399.
