Pandemic-EBT Benefits Coming to All NECSD Families

Many families in Orange County are starting to receive Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) food benefits. P-EBT is a new program in response to #COVID19 school closures. It provides families $420 in food benefits for every current PreK-12 scholar in NECSD under the National School Lunch Program. Learn more: hungersolutionsny.org/pebt

Pandemic-EBT is a new crisis response nutrition program activated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will provide food benefits to 2.1 million New York students. Every child who receives free or reduced-price school meals through the National School Lunch Program is eligible to receive P-EBT benefits. This includes children who attend a school that provides free lunch to all, which includes the Newburgh Enlarged City School District. All PreK-12 scholars who were actively enrolled in NECSD for the 2019-2020 school year, as of March 2020 will receive this benefit. If you do not need this benefit, please view the infographic below or the Hunger Solutions NY website for information on how to donate those funds. 

Important highlights of Pandemic-EBT: 

  • Each eligible child will receive $420 in P-EBT food benefits.
  • P-EBT benefits can be used to buy food at SNAP-participating stores
  • There is no application. P-EBT benefits will be issued automatically between June and August. Families who receive SNAP, Public Assistance, or Medicaid will get benefits on their current EBT or Medicaid card. Others will receive a new EBT card in the mail.
  • Immigration status does not matter for P-EBT. Using P-EBT does not affect a parent/guardian or child’s immigration status. The public charge rule does not apply to P-EBT.
  • P-EBT is not SNAP, and does not replace other nutrition programs. Families can still use other programs while using P-EBT. These include summer meals, SNAP, WIC, and "grab and go" or delivered meals from school.
