The Georgia Department of Human Services recently released updated information about the state's Pandemic EBT program. Most notable is the following:
Additionally, in October 2022, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) approved Georgia
for P-EBT continuation for SNAP-enrolled children ages 0-5 and 5 who turned 6 during
the 2021-22 school year, as well as K-12 students who were determined individually
eligible for free or reduced lunch at a National School Lunch Program (NSLP) school.
Both eligible categories, including children 0-5 and 5 who turned 6 during the school
year and K-12 students, will get a one-time benefit issuance of $391 in December of
2022 to cover the time period of summer 2022. The issuance schedule will be posted
later this year, with no individual receiving more than one benefit.
Valdosta City Schools does NOT handle the disbursement of funds nor do we determine individual eligibility. For specific questions, please call 1-888-421-3281.
