Pandemic EBT Information

Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) is a new food assistance program for families that have children eligible for free and reduced-price school meals. Families will receive up to $365 per eligible child which will be pre-loaded onto a P-EBT card sent in the mail. 

Families with children who get CalFresh, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits do not need to apply. Most will get their P-EBT card in the mail during the month of May. P-EBT cards will begin arriving around May 12, 2020.

Families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals and who do not get their P-EBT card in the mail by about May 22, 2020 must apply online before June 30, 2020. The online application will be available beginning May 22, 2020 at ca.p-ebt.org.
