Recently, you may have received in the mail a Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) card. This card is issued by the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 that provides this temporary program. Your child received this card because all students who attend Whitehall City Schools are eligible for free breakfasts and lunches through the federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) of which Whitehall City Schools is registered as a Provision II district. The P-EBT program is locally administered by Ohio Department of Job & Family Services.
There is nothing you need to sign up for or register. You can receive more information for this program by going to Ohio Job and Family Services website here: http://ohiopebt.org/
