A Message to our Families Regarding Pandemic EBT
Due to coronavirus (COVID 19), children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school will get extra food benefits. These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT benefits. P-EBT benefits help families in California buy food when school is closed.
Most families with children who receive CalFresh, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits do not need to apply for this online. They will automatically get their P-EBT card in the mail between May 7- 22, 2020.
Families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals and who do NOT get CalFresh, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits must apply online before June 30, 2020. Please note that the online application for these families will be available beginning May 22, 2020.
