Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a one-time food benefit for families who lost access to free or reduced-price meals due to school closures. Eligible P-EBT families will receive application instructions from schools in late May. The P-EBT application will open the first week of June. P-EBT food benefits are for children who received SNAP food benefits for March 2020 and children who are certified for free or reduced-price school meals during the 2019-20 Texas school year.

Families may drive through or walk up to pick up meals for their children at any of the locations listed below. Children must be present to receive a meal. When picking up meals, please follow these procedures:
Parents and children are asked to stay in line and in their vehicle until it is their turn to pick up meals from the table.
A staff member will ask the parent how many children are in the vehicle and need meals.
Meals will be placed on tables next to the curbside for parents to pick up.
One person, when instructed by a staff member, will exit their vehicle and pick up meals from the table.
The parent is not allowed to get out of line or vehicle and approach the table to get their meals until instructed to by a staff member.
For everyone’s protection and to maintain social distancing, students who walk or ride their bicycles to receive meals must form a line behind the table, and each person in line at the walk-up table must remain six feet apart. Walk-ups will retrieve their meals from the table as directed.
No parent or student will be allowed past the table barricade. All are expected to comply with social distancing of at least 6 feet.
Anyone not complying with these rules may be asked to leave the site.
No parent or student will be allowed past the checkpoint barricades. No exceptions.
If assistance is needed with a parent or student that is non-compliant please call dispatch at 979-361-3888.
