Pandemic EBT (P-EBT)

The closing of schools due to COVID-19 is preventing many of Kentucky's students from the meals they rely on. Schools and private non-profit organizations are working around the clock to meet this need for students with as many options as possible.

The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) is overseeing P-EBT benefits. Please do not contact your local school district or the Kentucky Department of Education with questions for assistance. The current frequently asked questions (FAQs) can be found on the CHF​S P-EBT webpagePlease direct ALL P-EBT questions to CHFS at 1-855-306-8959.
