Families may verify if their child is eligible for P-EBT by calling the P-EBT Call Center at 1-833-316-2423.

MDE and MDHS are currently issuing new P-EBT cards to children eligible for 2022 P-EBT.  Please call the P-EBT Call Center to ask if your child is eligible for benefits, or to request an address change for your P-EBT card.  P-EBT Customer Service Representatives are available at 1-833-316-2423, Monday - Friday, 8:30 am -5:30 pm CST.
