Notice Regarding Future P-EBT Benefits:
Mississippi is in the planning process for another possible round of P-EBT benefits for School Year 2021-22 and Summer 2022 if authorized by the federal government.
To be eligible to receive these benefits if they are issued, children must qualify for free or reduced priced lunch under the National School Lunch Program.
To prevent delays in receiving any possible new P-EBT benefits, please make sure that you have submitted an application for Free or Reduced Priced Lunch for each of your children by April 29, 2022.
If you have already completed a meal application form for SY 2021-22 or received a letter stating your students are eligible for Free or Reduced meals for this school year, there is no need to submit another one.
You should also make sure that your mailing address is up to date with your school.
Important for families! Please make sure that your mailing address is up to date with your child’s school before the end of the year. If MS is approved to issue more PEBT benefits in the future, PEBT cards for newly eligible children will be mailed to the most recent mailing address on file at their school.
Notice Regarding Free & Reduced Lunch Forms:
Even if your child ate free school lunches this year, make sure that you have submitted a school lunch application form for the 2021-22 school year. If Mississippi is approved to issue more PEBT benefits, this information will be used to determine eligibility. Contact your child's school today to submit a school lunch form if you have not done so this school year.
