COVID-19 Free Grab & Go Meals

Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) in Pennsylvania


The Family’s First Coronavirus Response Act authorized a new benefit to help families who have children who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals called Pandemic-EBT. The benefit will come on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which is like a debit card. The benefits can only be spent only on food items.

Any household with a student who is eligible for free or reduced price meals is able to receive P-EBT. This includes:

  • Students who attend a school where all students are offered free meals are eligible regardless of income. (These are schools that participate in the Community Eligibility Provision, or CEP.)
  • Students are eligible regardless of immigration status. Receiving or using this benefit does not impact the student’s or any household member’s immigration status or any current or future application for permanent residency.
  • Families that recently lost income due to job loss or fewer hours can still apply for school meals.
