Qualified students will soon receive a letter “Notice of Action” that the P-EBT card is on its way.  This letter will be sent to the mailing address on file with the NV school district and it will include information on how to use the EBT card.   P-EBT cards  are sent out by the WA State DSHS and NOW are expected to arrive by APRIL 27TH.

P-EBT provides funds to make up for the cost of free meals missed at school.  These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries.  For qualified students there is NO separate P-EBT application required for this year’s P-EBT benefit.

BENEFITS ARE AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS WHO ARE:

  • Eligible for the  free or reduced-price school meal program  AND
  • Enrolled at any of the following schools in our school district this school year.

Families not currently approved for free /reduced meals may still complete a FREE/REDUCED MEAL application at any time.  If approved, they will then receive the full school year of P-EBT benefits.  Visit the Free & Reduced tab to learn how to apply. 

P-EBT Benefit cards will be mailed to the mailing address on file with Nooksack Valley School District

  •  It is very important your mailing address on file with us is accurate. Please contact your school main office to update your mailing address.
  •  EBT cards are issued one per qualifying student: Each student will receive a P-EBT card in their name. 
  • P-EBT cards should ARRIVE BY APRIL 20TH ( Slight delays have happened at the State level) 

If you have a P-EBT question or issue with your benefit:  Call the help center hotline: 1-833-518-0282  Mon- Fri 8am- 5pm

   P-EBT BENEFIT AMOUNT:  Each SCHOOL will be assigned a monthly  P-EBT benefit level that will determine the amount of money each student enrolled at that site will receive. 

  • This amount will be the same set amount for ALL qualified enrolled students within each NV building (on-campus and remote leaning students will receive the same set amount).   
  • The first round of P-EBT benefits will be for the first five months of the school year which includes September through January.
