Pandemic EBT Program
Because schools were closed due to COVID-19 and our district participates in the USDA Community Eligibility Provision, all children in Jackson-Madison County Schools are eligible for $5.70 per child for each day during the months of March, April and May in food benefits through the Pandemic EBT program. A message went out on June 15th from the school district on how to apply. We are in the middle of the open enrollment period for households to apply.
Families will get up to $5.70 per child on their P-EBT card to use on food and groceries. If you already have this card, you do not need to apply online. The amount will be automatically placed on your P-EBT card. Those families who wish to apply can go to http://www.tn.gov/humanservices or call 1-833-496-0661 and select option 3 for assistance.
The deadline for applying has been extended until Monday, July 13th at 4:30 pm.
