COMING SOON! Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) 2.0

What is P-EBT?

Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) provides food benefits to help families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals!

  • P-EBT is run by the California Department of Social Services in collaboration with the California Department of Education.
  • Funds to purchase groceries are given on a card similar to an EBT card.
  • Children can continue to receive FREE meals at school or meal kits for home while also receiving P-EBT benefits.

Who can receive P-EBT benefits?

In order to receive P-EBT benefits, a student must qualify during school year 2020-21 for free or reduced-price meals based on one of the following:

  • Free or reduced-price meal application
  • Participation in a benefit program (CalFresh, CalWORKs, Medi-Cal) as identified through direct certification
  • Status of homeless, migrant, or foster

How do I receive my benefits?

The next round of P-EBT benefit cards will be mailed to qualifying students beginning in April through June. This time there is no online application – qualifying students are automatically mailed their P-EBT benefit cards based on their mailing address on file at their school.

***PARENTS: MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS ON FILE AT SCHOOL (PARENT PORTAL) IS CORRECT!***

  • Parents with multiple students must ensure all of their students’ addresses on file are correct.
  • If your address in the parent portal is not correct, call your school office. 

Where can I get more information? Who can I call for questions?

  • https://www.cdss.ca.gov/home/pandemic-ebt
  • If you have questions about your P-EBT benefits, call the P-EBT Helpline at (877) 328-9677. This number cannot assist with questions about P-EBT eligibility or issuing new benefits.
