Pandemic EBT (or P-EBT) is a federal program that gives eligible families food benefits to replace meals lost at childcare or school because of the pandemic. This is available for school age children and children under 6 years old who meet certain requirements. Families do not need to apply for this benefit and a P-EBT card will be mailed to each child in the home.
