Get help buying food while schools are closed. 

COVID-19 Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits will be available soon. P-EBT is a disaster emergency benefit based on free and reduced fee school meals eligibility. While schools are closed due to #COVID19, children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals can get up to $365 in food benefits in addition to community ‘to-go” meals. Pandemic EBT is offered by the State of Ca (not Windsor Unified), but if you do not already qualify for free or reduced-price meals for the 19/20 school year and believe that you now will qualify, you must submit a free or reduced application to Windsor Unified. *Info about that was sent in a prior email.                                         Learn more about these P-EBT food benefits: 

Is my family still eligible to participate in school meal programs through COVID-19 emergency feeding if we receive P-EBT?

YES! P-EBT benefits are additional benefits that do not replace any child nutrition program meals being offered. Children may continue to receive “grab n go” meals or emergency food at COVID-19 emergency feeding sites offered by schools and community locations, even if they are receiving P-EBT benefits.

Who is eligible for P-EBT benefits? Children are eligible for P-EBT benefits if: ● their school is closed due to coronavirus (COVID 19); and ● they are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals

How do I get P-EBT benefits? Most families with children who receive CalFresh, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits do not need to apply. They will automatically get their P-EBT card in the mail between May 7- 22, 2020.

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 applyonline starting May 22, 2020 and before June 30, 2020
