P-EBT will provide extra money to buy food

The Pandemic – Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Program provides additional money for families to buy food and meet needs brought on by COVID-19 related school closures. 

P-EBT is available to parents and guardians whose children were enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade during the 2019-20 school year and they either received free- or reduced-price lunches under the National School Lunch Program or attended a school where every student is served free meals.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services will send letters to qualifying families by mid-June.
