Apply Now: Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) for Families

P-EBT

Families that qualify for free or reduced-price school meals may get $365 per child in state benefits to buy food. Families who received a P-EBT card in the mail do not need to apply. The application is easy.

Apply today and you should receive your benefits within 10 days. Apply at ca.p-ebt.org. For more information, visit ca.p-ebt.org/info.

Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) Eligible for Families

This is an important message from the Elk Grove Unified School District. We believe you may be eligible to get $365 per child to help feed your family, in addition to any grab-n-go meals you may be getting. Because schools are closed due to COVID-19, families who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals can get extra food benefits to help feed their children. These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT.

Families will get up to $365 per eligible child on a P-EBT card. You can use your P-EBT card like a debit card to buy food and groceries for your children.

Most families who receive CalFresh, CalWORKS, Medi-Cal or other social services benefits will get a P-EBT card in the mail before May 22. Please keep an eye out for this card in the mail over the next few weeks.

Other families will need to complete a simple and quick online application before June 30, 2020.

For more information, visit ca.p-ebt.org/info or call the EGUSD Department of Food Nutrition Services at (916) 686-7735.

It’s National School Breakfast Week

“Eat Right, Bite by Bite” theme for National Nutrition Month

 

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ theme for this year’s National Nutrition Month is “Eat Right, Bite by Bite,” and registered dietitian Anne Gaffney says that includes practicing mindful eating, making better food choices and increasing physical activity. Good nutrition should not be overwhelming or too restrictive, and small dietary changes can add up.
