Did you know that there are six stages to P-EBT?
According to No Kid Hungry, there are six phases of P-EBT implementation and we are currently in phase 5. That’s the 2021-2022 school year. The sixth and final stage is Summer 2022.
We do have some good news, though. P-EBT benefits have increased!
The daily benefit amount is now $7.10 per day. That’s the cost of a school breakfast, lunch and snack. That adds up to about $35 per week for each eligible child. For a family with two children, that’s an extra $70 per week.
However, hundreds of millions of dollars of P-EBT benefits are sitting unused.
In California alone, over $182 million in P-EBT funds are unused. That’s about 500,000 cards that have not been touched. These benefits are available but the families just aren’t using them
