EBT Funds for All BPS Students

Every BPS family will receive financial assistance for food due to the COVID-19 pandemic, available under a new federal program, P-EBT. Families will receive $28.50 a week for each eligible child.  

If you do not currently have an EBT card, you will receive a P-EBT card in the mail. Each enrolled BPS child in the household will receive a unique P-EBT card. If you currently have an EBT card, funds will be added to your account. The money can be used to buy food items at stores where SNAP benefits (food stamps) are accepted (look for signs that say, “We accept EBT here”). For more information, call the Project Bread FoodSource Hotline at 800-645-8333, click here, or email . The card is valid for one year.
