P-EBT for Children

The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program provides temporary food assistance to families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. The program is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has disrupted school meal programs and made it difficult for families to access healthy food.

Families who are eligible for P-EBT will receive a monthly benefit that can be used to purchase food at authorized retailers. The benefit amount is based on the number of children in the family and the school district where the children attend school.


  • To be eligible for P-EBT, a child must:
  • Be enrolled in a school that is participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) or School Breakfast Program (SBP)
  • Be eligible for free or reduced-price meals under the NSLP or SBP


  • P-EBT benefits are provided on an EBT card, which works like a debit card. Benefits can be used to purchase food at authorized retailers, including grocery stores, farmers markets, and convenience stores.
  • The benefit amount is based on the number of children in the family and the school district where the children attend school.
  • For the 2022-2023 school year, the P-EBT benefit is $125 per eligible child, per month.

How to Apply

  • Families do not need to apply for P-EBT. Eligible families will be automatically enrolled in the program and will receive a P-EBT card in the mail.
  • If you have not received your P-EBT card, you can contact your state’s P-EBT office.

Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a federal nutrition program that provides supplemental foods, nutrition education, and referrals to other health care services to low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, and to infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk.

WIC benefits include:

  • Supplemental foods: WIC provides vouchers that can be used to purchase specific foods, such as milk, eggs, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
  • Nutrition education: WIC offers nutrition education classes and counseling to help participants make healthy choices for themselves and their families.
  • Referrals to other health care services: WIC can refer participants to other health care services, such as prenatal care, well-child visits, and immunizations.

To be eligible for WIC, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a pregnant, breastfeeding, or non-breastfeeding postpartum woman, or be an infant or child up to age 5.
  • Have a household income that is at or below 185% of the federal poverty level.
