Welcome to the Child Nutrition Program.
Most households will receive remote PEBT on the same account used for original PEBT and will not receive a new card. Households that are newly eligible for PEBT or could not be matched to the spring PEBT data are receiving new PEBT cards via the US mail. The new cards are being issued on a rolling basis and not all will be received in the mail this week. Additional cardstock was required and the target date for all households to receive the cards has been moved to November 13, 2020.
Households that contact you about a "missing" PEBT remote benefit should first check their existing PEBT account using ConnectEBT. Instructions are below. ConnectEBT should also be used to request a replacement card. If the household is connected to a customer service representative (CSR) on ConnectEBT, they should spell their name for the CSR.
Households should submit other questions about PEBT in writing to DSS on the PEBT web portal.
- "Enter P-EBT card number" - for replacement card, bypass by pressing "2" to use personal information.
- "Enter primary cardholder's SSN" - all PEBT cardholders must enter 000000000, not their own SSN.
- "Enter primary cardholders DOB" - all P-EBT cardholders should enter the oldest student's DOB, if there was more than one student's benefits on the card. It is the same student DOB that was used to PIN the card.
- "Enter PIN" - PEBT cardholders should enter the PIN of the card they are seeking to replace.

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to Students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
