EBT application

Hello Parents and Guardians,
This is an important message. You may be eligible to get up to $365 per student in your household while schools are closed due to COVID-19. Students who were receiving free or reduced-price meals prior to the COVID-19 pandemic can get extra money for groceries to ensure they have enough to eat during the current crisis. These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT and are in addition to grab-n-go meals served by schools and nonprofits in your community. Families will get up to $365 for groceries per eligible student on a P-EBT card which can be used like a debit card at grocery stores, farmer’s markets, and online at Walmart.com or Amazon.com (home delivery charges might apply).
All students who receive CalFresh, Medi-Cal or foster service benefits should automatically receive a P-EBT card in the mail by May 25. If you have not received a card, please call (877) 328-9677. All other students who received free or reduced-price meals should complete a simple and quick online application between May 25 and June 30, 2020. Applications may be found at ca.p-ebt.org. You must apply by June 30, 2020 to receive your card. For more information, go online to sdhunger.org/p-ebt. Thank you.
Saludos Padres y Tutores,
El siguiente es un mensaje importante. Hay posibilidad de que puede contar con elegibilidad para recibir un máximo de $365 dólares por alumno que viva en su hogar mientras las escuelas están cerradas debido a COVID-19. Los alumnos que recibían comidas gratis o a precio reducido antes de la pandemia de COVID-19 pueden obtener dinero extra para comprar comestibles con el fin de garantizar que cuenten con suficiente para comer durante la crisis actual. A dichos beneficios alimenticios se les conoce como Pandemia EBT o P-EBT y se suman a los servicios para llevar disponibles en las escuelas y organizaciones sin fines de lucro de su comunidad. Las familias recibirán hasta $365 dólares para alimentos por alumno que cuente con elegibilidad en una tarjeta P-EBT que se puede utilizar como una tarjeta de débito en supermercados, mercados de agricultores, y por internet en Walmart.com o Amazon.com (pueden aplicarse cargos por envío a domicilio).
Todo alumno que recibe beneficios de CalFresh, Medi-Cal o por vivir en hogares temporales debe recibir automáticamente una tarjeta P-EBT por correo antes del 25 de mayo. Si no ha recibido una tarjeta, favor de llamar al teléfono (877) 328- 9677. Los demás alumnos que recibieron comidas gratuitas o a precio reducido tienen que llenar en línea una solicitud sencilla y rápida entre el 25 de mayo de 2020 y el 30 de junio de 2020. Usted puede encontrar la solicitud en ca.p-ebt.org. Debe solicitar antes del 30 de junio de 2020 para recibir su tarjeta. Para más información, favor de consultar: sdhunger.org/p-ebt. Gracias.
