Dear Lockport Families,
New York State is providing Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) food benefits to all households with children who are eligible to receive free school lunch under the National School Lunch Act and whose school was closed or operating with reduced in-school attendance due to COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Issuance of the P-EBT benefit will commence soon for Lockport families and will continue for several weeks. Due to the large number of eligible children and schools participating in the National School Lunch Program across the state this may take months. Your patience is appreciated.
If a parent’s child(ren) is eligible and has not received their P-EBT benefit by October 29, 2021, they may then fill out the P-EBT Information Form at such time.
For additional information, parents may visit NYSOTDA P-EBT Benefits Information Page.
Please realize the Lockport City School district does not issue or load funds onto cards.
You may also call 1-888-328-6399 if you have lost, misplaced or destroyed your original card for a replacement card.
