 P-EBT provides supplemental food assistance benefits to students who have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the program is to make sure no child goes hungry by missing out on school meals.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and Michigan Department of Education (MDE) partnered during the 2019-2020 school year to provide these critical benefits to over 900,000 students. We are excited to be partnering again for the 2020-2021 school year to provide these benefits to students to help reduce food insecurity. Eligible students must: 

  • Be enrolled in a Michigan school. 

  • Participate in a virtual or hybrid school schedule. 

  • Be eligible for free or reduced lunch or attend a CEP school.  


Students eligible for the P-EBT benefits will be notified by MDHHS directly. Please reference the attached FAQ document. Additional information is also available by calling (833) 905-0028 or at the following MDHHS website:
