LA County families have a new resource for food and groceries. Families who are normally able to receive free or reduced-cost meals at school, may now qualify for additional cash benefits (up to $365 per eligible child) through the Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) program.
Families with children who are eligible for free and reduced-price meals, and who did not receive their P-EBT card in the mail by May 22, 2020, must apply online before June 30, 2020.
NOTE: this P-EBT benefit is in addition to any "grab n go" meals children may already be picking up from school. Children can still receive emergency food at COVID-19 emergency feeding sites offered by schools and community locations, even if they are receiving P-EBT benefits.
