P-EBT benefits help families in California buy food when school is closed. Most families with children who receive CalFresh, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits do not need to apply because they will get their P-EBT card in the mail during the month of May. Families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals and who do NOT get CalFresh, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits must apply online before the extended deadline of July 15, 2020. Families that have already applied for P-EBT benefits who are still awaiting an eligibility determination do not need to apply again. DJUSD is joining many other public agencies to share messaging with families about this important program. Apply at: https://ca.p-ebt.org/
