  • Food Assistance for Chatham Families

    COVID-19 has kept some Chatham County residents from securing food. They may benefit from the newly created Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) Program.

    The program provides benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer card, or EBT card. The benefits are for children who would receive free or reduced-priced meals, so it is very important to make sure the address on file for students is correct. The data manager at the appropriate school for students should be contacted to make updates to addresses, or call 919-542-6400 to make updates.

    No application process is necessary to receive P-EBT benefits. The card will function like a standard EBT card, and the same guidelines will apply. 

    Those already receiving Food and Nutrition Services benefits will receive an additional benefit on their existing EBT card in the next few weeks. Those eligible for P-EBT benefits who are not already enrolled in Food and Nutrition Services benefits will receive a new EBT card in the next few weeks. Before that card arrives, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services will mail a letter explaining how to activate the card and how to use it. 

    The Chatham County Department of Social Services will receive questions about this program by phone at 919-542-2759 or through email at askdss@chathamnc.org.

    Those using P-EBT benefits are encouraged to also take advantage of meal distribution at designated public schools and community locations. The meals are free for anybody 18 years old and younger. Find local meal sites by texting FOODNC to 877-877. Spanish speakers may text COMIDA to 877-877.

  • How to Disinfect your Chromebook:

    • Use a sturdy damp, not wet, lint-free paper or cloth.

    • Spray or lightly dampen the cloth with rubbing alcohol.

    • Any excess dampness will naturally and quickly dry. Do not wipe dry with another cloth.

    DO NOT USE cleaners or wipes that contain either bleach or ammonia! These chemicals can damage your Chromebook, and you will be charged fees!
