New York State Meal Card Benefits
New York State is providing Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) food benefits to all households with children who are eligible to receive free school lunch under the National School Lunch Act and whose school was closed or operating with reduced in-school attendance due to COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Issuance of the food benefit will commence in June and continue for several months, due to the large number of eligible children and schools participating in the National School Lunch Program across the state. If your child(ren) is eligible and has not received P-EBT benefit by October 2021, you may fill out the P-EBT Information Form.
If your child(ren) is newly enrolled in their school and/or you believe they qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, please contact your child’s school to ask about the program requirements.
If you have misplaced a P-EBT Food Benefit card issued to your child[ren], you may order a replacement card by calling 1-888-328-6399 If your child[ren] received P-EBT benefits on a Medicaid card and you need to order a replacement NYS Medicaid card or select a PIN, go to otda.ny.gov/SNAP-COVID-19/P-EBT-Medicaid-Card-PIN-Instructions.asp for more information.
Once you have set up a PIN to access your P-EBT food benefits, you can check your family’s P-EBT food benefits balance by visiting www.connectebt.com or by calling 1-888-328-6399.
