Cumberland County Schools (CCS) is among the North Carolina school districts approved for eligible students to receive P-EBT benefits for August and September 2020.  

The Pandemic-EBT program, a collaboration between the NC Department of Health and Human Services and the NC Department of Public Instruction, helps families purchase food for children whose access to free and reduced-price meals at school has been impacted by COVID-19.  The program provides benefits on an EBT card that can be used to buy food at authorized retailers, including most major grocery stores.

Eligibility for the fall 2020 P-EBT benefits is different than the eligibility criteria last spring.  For additional information, review the following documents:

North Carolina has been approved for the new Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program. This program will help families who have been impacted by school closings due to COVID-19 purchase food for their children.

Families with students at non-CEP schools may apply for free or reduced meals through the end of the school year.  Anyone qualifying before the end of the 2019-2020 school year will qualify for the P-EBT benefits, as well.  Applications may be submitted online at www.lunchapplication.com.

Students without fees also participated and the credit was used to apply towards other students’ debts. One student brought in enough soda tabs to cover all of the overdue fees for the whole school. NCIMS Custodian, Chad Slade, also contributed by bringing in gallon jugs full of tabs that his family had been collecting.
