ACSD Food Service Announcement

 Update on 7/9/20:  

DSS has established a portal for families to correct their addresses for PEBT benefits.

The South Carolina DSS will issue a one-time benefit to help support family food costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and prolonged school closures.


Who is eligible for P-EBT?

Calhoun, Long Cane Primary, & Westwood Elementary.

·       Current SNAP households whose child(ren) was enrolled in a free or reduced-price meals program as of March 13th will receive their P-EBT benefit on their regular EBT card on July 7th OR on their normal monthly SNAP issuance date.  


For households not participating in SNAP, whose child(ren) were enrolled in a free or reduced-price meals program or attending a CEP school as of March 13, 2020, a P-EBT card will be mailed to the address on file with your child's school district between July 20th and 24th.


Parents are asked not to contact your local DSS county office with questions about P-EBT.
