P EBT CARDS: New information about another round of Pandemic EBT cards are attached. 

  Please know that Nutrition Services does not distribute these cards and we do not have access to specific information regarding these benefits. 

Any questions please have them contact the California Department of Social Services at


In summary “what you need to know” :

            ·         All our families that received P EBT cards over the summer will receive them 


             ·         No one needs to apply for P EBT Extension. It’s coming to students automatically

                       via mail.

·         Only students who received them previously will receive them again (excluding 

         students that left the district or graduated). 

·         Newly enrolled students for the 2020-21 school year will not qualify for these

         benefits at this time. 

·         Amounts on the P EBT card vary by district and based on the number of school

        days for Aug & Sept.
