Food Services

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! 

Effective immediately, Northumberland County Public Schools will be serving meals at no charge to children 18 and under. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved waivers for local school divisions and other federal meal program sponsors to implement the Summer Food Service Program to provide meals to children in the community free of charge through December 31, 2020. The waivers support access to nutritious meals while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.

Information‌ ‌about‌ ‌PEBT‌ ‌Cards‌

Before contacting ConnectEBT about a "missing" PEBT remote benefit  check the existing PEBT account using ConnectEBT. Instructions are below. ConnectEBT should also be used to request a replacement card. If the household is connected to a customer service representative (CSR) on ConnectEBT, they should spell their name for the CSR. 

Households should submit other questions about PEBT in writing to DSS on the PEBT web portal.

Call 1-866-281-2448, logon to, or download the ConnectEBT app on a mobile device.  


P-EBT card accounts did not use the parent/guardian's Social Security Number (SSN) or the parent/guardian's date of birth (DOB). When P-EBT households use the automated system, (phone, website, or mobile app) to request a replacement card or access account information, they should use the following information at each step.

  • "Enter P-EBT card number" - for replacement card, bypass by pressing "2" to use personal information.

  • "Enter primary cardholder's SSN" - all PEBT cardholders must enter 000000000, not their own SSN.

  • "Enter primary cardholders DOB" - all P-EBT cardholders should enter the oldest student's DOB, if there was more than one student's benefits on the card. It is the same student DOB that was used to PIN the card.

  • "Enter PIN" - PEBT cardholders should enter the PIN of the card they are seeking to replace.

The new target date for all households to receive the cards has been moved to November 13, 2020.
