Recently, Congress extended P-EBT through the summer of 2021. If California is approved to provide Summer P-EBT benefits, eligible children will receive a standard Summer P-EBT benefit of $375, which will be reloaded on their existing P-EBT 2.0 card.
1. children ages 0-6 years and already receiving Cal Fresh will receive a card or have previously sent cards reloaded between July and August 2021.
2. children from grades TK - 12th grade who qualified for free/reduced school meals will receive a card or have previously sent cards reloaded between August and November 2021.
Cards are sent out alphabetically by first name to each individual child, which is why families may receive several at different times.
Those who do not want these benefits can refuse by destroying their cards before using them. Receiving cards and using them does not affect immigration status or future, does not affect any other benefits, and there is no application process.
