Pandemic EBT Program

  • Hello Northern Lehigh families,

    Federal nutrition programs are available to help you provide healthy meals for your family. 

    • If your children are eligible for free or reduced meals during the school year, they are eligible for a Pandemic EBT card (P-EBT) with benefits.
    • If your children are members of a household that received SNAP benefits at any time since October 1, 2021, they are eligible for the P-EBT card.
    • If you collect SNAP or TANF benefits this will not affect your current benefits.

    Every family is encouraged to complete an application for free or reduced meal benefits.  The eligibility guidelines have been adjusted and your child may now be eligible.  Also, this is to ensure your current, correct address is in the system for when the cards are mailed to you.  To apply, visit www.compass.state.pa.us

    Even if you do not feel you qualify, please complete the application so we have your current information.

    Attached are flyers that explain this benefit, the timeline for receiving this benefit, and information on SNAP benefits.  Benefits may not be received by you until mid June.

    If you have questions on P-EBT please call Sue Bahnick at 610-767-9811.  If you have questions on how to apply for SNAP, there is contact information on the SNAP flyer.

    Thank you,

    Sue Bahnick
