Families can apply for extra food benefits beginning May 22
Posted 5/22/20

We want you to be aware of a state program, to provide families with extra food benefits during the (COVID-19) pandemic. Eligible families include those with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school. These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT benefits. P-EBT benefits help families in California buy food when schools are closed because of the coronavirus emergency.
 
Families will get up to $365 per eligible child on their P-EBT card to use on food and groceries.Families with children who get CalFresh, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits do not need to apply. Most should have received their P-EBT card in the mail this month. 
 
Families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals and who did NOT get their P-EBT card in the mail must apply online before June 30, 2020. The online application is now available at ca.p-ebt.org
 
Please note this is not a NVUSD program and families need to apply directly through the website link above. You can find more information about the program here.
