Pandemic Food Benefits
Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) provides eligible families with a one-time payment for each child who previously received free or reduced-price meals. P-EBT benefits are non-transferrable.
P-EBT food benefits are for children who would have received free or reduced-price school meals while attending school but are not attending school in person because of COVID-19 restrictions. For more information, visit: hhs.texas.gov/PEBT
Please review the criteria to see if you need to apply to receive these benefits.
