Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) 2.0 EXTENSION

P-EBT provides food benefits to help families with young children (aged 0-6) who got CalFresh Food benefits between October 2020 and May 2021 and school age children who were eligible for free or reduced-price school meals through the federal School Breakfast or National School Lunch Program for School Year 2020-21, and assumed to have attended school via distance learning at least some of that time.

THERE IS NO P-EBT 2.0 APPLICATION. P-EBT 2.0 cards for eligible young children will be automatically mailed beginning early July 2021 through August 2021, while P-EBT 2.0 cards for eligible school age children will be automatically mailed beginning early August 2021 through November 2021. Cards will be mailed by age group in alphabetical order based on the first name of the eligible child.

Families that have not received a P-EBT card but have questions about their P-EBT eligibility can also contact the P-EBT Helpline at (877) 328-9677.
