  • Food Stamp Update

    An application is being developed to provide a meal-replacement benefit through SNAP under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020. DESE will share details as soon as they are available. Read more from USDA about the Pandemic EBT here.

    DESE has worked with the Department of Social Services (DSS) to update the DSS Family Support Division recording and the information being shared about P-EBT. This message previously instructed families to contact their local school district. However, this was incorrect information. The message has been revised to say the following: “This benefit is not yet available. You will be contacted to apply when applications are available.”

    For questions, please direct families to call 855-FSD-INFO or 855-373-4636, M-F 6am to 6pm, Saturday 8am to 5pm and Sunday 10am to 3pm.
