P-EBT is only available to families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at school. Families who qualify for P-EBT will receive a card in the mail that can be used to purchase food at participating retailers.
P-EBT benefits are issued on a monthly basis, and the amount of benefits you receive will depend on the number of school days in a month and the number of children you have enrolled in the program.
P-EBT benefits can be used to purchase any food item at participating retailers, including fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, and non-perishable items.
