MDHS has just released the P-EBT 2021 benefit list and some of the schools in our region are included. Attala, Leake, Neshoba and Winston made the cut. The P-EBT program provides benefits to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and non-SNAP households for children who have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to pandemic-related school closures. This program is administered by the Mississippi Department of Human Services.
*Mississippi was originally approved in 2020 to participate in the Federally funded Pandemic Electronic Benefits Program (P-EBT).
