North Carolina is providing electronic pandemic food assistance benefits, also referred to as P-EBT, to help families purchase food for their children. There is no application to apply for P-EBT. All students in Wilson County Schools qualify because our students are currently eligible for breakfast and lunch at no cost through the Community Eligibility Provision.
If you already have an EBT or P-EBT card, the benefits will be loaded on your existing card. If you do not currently have one, a card will be mailed to the address you have provided to the school. Many families received a letter last week indicating that their card would be mailed sometime this month. If you have not received a letter by the end of the week, please contact the EBT Call Center at 1-866-719-0141 to make sure they have your correct address.
While we are always happy to assist families with questions, it's important to note that Wilson County Schools is not in charge of this program. All calls and questions need to be directed to the EBT Call Center at 1-866-719-0141. You can also find the answer to many questions at www.ncdhhs.gov/pebt.
