Pandemic EBT (P-EBT)
Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits are only available for students who are approved for the Free and Reduced program.
Please contact support specialists at 1-800-410-5827 or online at dhr.alabala.gov/food-assistance/ from 7am-6pm Monday through Friday if you have questions.
The Child Nutrition Program does not handle the P-EBT benefits, and the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) oversees the distribution of P-EBT cards.
All student meals are free for the 2021-2022 school year!
Ala carte purchases will be available at CEH, OHS, and OMS locations. Additional food items will be available for purchase at CES, DES, and OES.
Even if denied for benefits with the Free & Reduced program due to over the income limit this year - all student meals are free for the 2021-2022 school year due to a USDA waiver!
Paper applications are only accepted - no faxes or emails.
Don't forget your application must be in ink, signed, have the last four of your social security #, how many members are in your household, and EVERY household member must be listed on the application.
Any missing information delays the processing of your application.
Applications can be turned in to your child's school or mailed to Oxford City Schools, Child Nutrition Program, PO Box 7670 Oxford, AL 36203.
Application is available to download and complete under the Free and Reduced Application Program Information.
