All families receive free school meals and NY EBT cards

All students enrolled in the Fort Plain Central School District, regardless of family income, receive free breakfast and lunch during the school year because the district is part of the federal Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the National School Lunch Program.

New York State is sending EBT cards to all Fort Plain Central School District families as part of the CEP program, and all families are receiving the EBT benefits, regardless of whether they usually receive EBT or SNAP benefits. The EBT card can be used at the grocery store. The card comes with instructions to set up a PIN and then can be swiped at the store, the same as a debit or credit card.
