New Resource for Clayton County Families
Posted on 06/23/2020

The Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) Department of School Nutrition is pleased to share information about another resource to help families in Clayton County who are experiencing food insecurities. 


The Georgia Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS) is partnering with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to provide food benefits to families with children who receive free and reduced lunch. The Family First Coronavirus Response Act of 2020 allows the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) to facilitate the distribution of Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT). 


Starting in July 2020, both DFCS and DOE, under the recently approved P-EBT plan, will issue funds to eligible families to offset additional food costs caused by the pandemic. The temporary funding includes a one-time allotment of $265.50 per eligible child and is intended to prevent food insecurity for families across Georgia.

Please take time to carefully read the attached documents for more details about the P-EBT program.
