Help Feed Your Children with Pandemic EBT

Students eligible for free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch at school can get food benefits. This is in addition to their pickup meals from school. These extra food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT. The child will get $5.70 for each weekday that they would have been in school. Visit the link for more information.


A brief update and great news, parents and School Food Authorities (SFA’s) now have the ability to go to YesNM portal that was established by HSD to look up their students information on P-EBT validate, update, and or change their address. The link is  https://www.yes.state.nm.us/yesnm/home/index and attached are the instruction on using this tool. The P-EBT is on the bottom right side of the webpage. In essence, if the parent or SFA has the 
student ID number and some additional student identifying data, you can verify, validate, and or change the students address and get a new P-EBT card issued and mailed to the proper address without contacting the PED or HSD. Please share with the families and or constituents that are involved with P-EBT. The PED and HSD are trying to be proactive and give you and our families the ability to do their own research on P-EBT issuance and ultimately ensure the student gets the P-EBT that was issued to them.ne lines with questions about P-EBT.
