P-EBT Benefit Cards

P-EBT Cards Are Arriving Soon







P-EBT cards are arriving in CPS families’ mailboxes this month! P-EBT is a benefit that can help buy groceries for school-age children. This assistance is available for children and youth who receive free and reduced-price meals and lack access to an in-school lunch. We are grateful for this assistance for our families.

Some local neighbors have reached out to us to share that while they do not need the P-EBT card, they’d like to donate the funds to Care for Real to help families in need. P-EBT cards are non-transferable so neighbors have the option of using the card benefits for their own families and then donating equivalent funds to Care for Real.
To make a donation, please click on careforreal.org/donate and be sure to note “P-EBT funds” in the note. With the funds provided to CPS families per school day missed, we can provide enough groceries to feed a family of four for five months!
