Like last summer, P-EBT is available to all school children who were eligible to receive free or reduced price meals during the current school year, and to school children who are newly determined eligible for meal benefits during the summer months in states that have an approved SY 2021-22 plan for school children and/or children in child care.
In Tennessee, the Department of Human Services (TDHS), in collaboration with the Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE), operates the P-EBT according to federal approval, guidelines and timelines.

How can I check the balance on my P-EBT card? If you have already activated your P-EBT card, call 1-888-997-1117 and follow the prompts to check your balance. You cannot check the balance on the card until it has been activated. Before activation, the card balance will appear to be $0.
Go to the “P-EBT Case and Balance Information” page (note: on a mobile phone, click on “How Close Am I?” to see the page). There enter your P-EBT card number. Your balance will show below your P-EBT case number. You can also call the number on the back of your P-EBT card (800-997-2555).

All eligible children will receive a standard summer P-EBT benefit of $375, which will be reloaded on existing P-EBT 2.0 cards in December 2021.

What if I never got P-EBT for the end of the 2020-21 school year? If you never received a card last year, you can still request DHS to look into what happened by using the PA DHS P-EBT Inquiry Form or calling the P-EBT hotline at 484-363-2137.
If you're not sure whether your EBT card has cash benefits or not, a quick way to find out is to try withdrawing cash at an ATM using your EBT card. It is best to use an ATM located at a bank, supermarket, shopping mall, or other establishment where EBT is accepted.
Step 1 Insert or swipe your card at the ATM. Step 2 Enter your four-number Personal Identification Number (PIN) on the keypad and press the “OK” or “ENTER” key. Step 3 Select “WITHDRAW CASH” and then select “CHECKING.” (Some ATMs may use different words.)
To receive P-EBT benefits, eligible families MUST apply online at https://pebt.doe.louisiana.gov/PublicApps/SNP/ by 5pm on September 29.
