P-EBT Food Benefit Program for Public School Students

P-EBT Food Benefit Program for Public School Students

Students who receive free or reduced price lunch are eligible to receive an additional benefit of $313.50 due to COVID-19 for households to spend on food at home for students.

If your child is currently enrolled in SNAP benefits, you do not need to do anything. These funds will automatically be added to the P-EBT Card.

If your child is receiving Medicaid or KTAP benefits based on income levels below the NSLP income guidelines, or if a child is in foster care, a P-EBT card will be mailed to you with instructions and you don't need to do anything to apply.

According to information we have received at this time, all other students in the Powell County Schools may apply for this benefit because we participate in the CEP program and all students here qualify for free lunch. Please see the attached flier for information on how to apply.

You will need your child's state issued school identification number. This number is the same number students use to log in to Infinite Campus to access their grades and attendance information. It can also be found through your Parent Portal account.  If you do not know this number, you may call 606-663-3300 and ask to speak to Meredith Robinson.

You will need to be able to provide information that identifies you as a child's guardian before you can receive this information. Please have the child's birthdate and social security number available to tell Mrs. Robinson when you call. If the information does not match what we have in Infinite Campus, you will need to set up an appointment to come by our office to show identification to show proof of guardianship, beginning June 1.
