If You Got P-EBT During The Pandemic, You Should Check Your Card

The P-EBT is not the normal EBT card, this was the card that was handed out to families with school-age children during the pandemic that was eligible for free or reduced lunch service at their school system. Children that attended Anderson Community Schools will receive the food benefit due to the school system's participation in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). The average payout to families is $391.00 per student enrolled during the 2021-2022 school year. For many, it could not come too soon.

Earlier today, I asked the community what the average grocery bill was, and many said from $200 to $500 per week in groceries. The P-EBT food cards did not require families to qualify for food assistance separately, as many parents that do not receive any help ended up receiving one of these cards. Be sure to check because some families mentioned they received multiple cards, one for each of their children. The card will be in the student's name and black and white in color. These cards were distributed last year. For more information or to inquire about a replacement card, I have included a link. https://www.in.gov/fssa/dfr/dfr-policy-changes-and-actions/pandemic-ebt/ .
