P-EBT program benefits resume in February
Parents urged to update addresses, information with home schools
PARKERSBURG — A second round of COVID-19 Pandemic EBT cards will be sent out in February, and those mailings will be based on information provided by Wood County Schools through the state WVEIS system.
If your address has recently changed, contact your home school to update your information. All updates must be made before Feb. 1.
Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) was introduced in H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The program delivers nutrition assistance on an EBT card that can be used to purchase groceries for families with school children who qualify for free or reduced price school meals when school is out of session due to a pandemic.
All Wood County Schools are Community Eligible Provision (CEP) schools, meaning all enrolled students automatically receive free meals. For more information on the P-EBT program, visit https://wvde.us/covid19/wv-pebt/.
