About Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) Benefits
If you have school-age children at home, you may be eligible for a new food assistance program now. Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) provides extra food benefits for families during COVID-19.
Increase Your Family’s Food Budget
P-EBT is a benefit that can help buy food for school-age children between the ages of 3-17 and youth aged 18-22 (in high school). P-EBT is available for children and youth who would receive free and reduced-price meals if schools were in session.
P-EBT may be extended to provide benefits for August and September. To qualify, your child must be enrolled in free or reduced-price meals, or your school must provide free meals for all students. To make sure you don’t miss out on P-EBT benefits, call your school today to apply for free or reduced-price meals. Even if your school is closed for in-person learning, you can and should call to apply for free and reduced-price meals.
