This is a reminder that breakfast and lunch are available at no cost to our students on school days through the remainder of the year. These meals are just the thing for those with an eye toward good nutrition. Our balanced meals offer the protein, the healthy fats and the right amount of carbohydrates that make for a good day of learning.
Students on campus during Plan B can get those meals when it’s time for breakfast and lunch. On remote-learning days, we’re offering meals for curbside pickup at certain schools. You’ll find a listing of those schools, plus updates about all things related to Chatham County Schools Nutrition Services, at chathamcountyschoolmeals.com.

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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
