  • P-EBT Card Updates
    The state of Massachusetts has announced that there will be P-EBT benefits for all families who have a child that is remote learning.
    The benefit will be made by electronic deposit to your existing P-EBT or EBT card. The details are below:
    • Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT, is a relief program created out of the CARES Act for families whose children qualify for free and reduced lunch. The program was launched in Massachusetts in April to help low-income families across the state cover the cost of missed school meals while their children learn remotely.
    • If families previously received P-EBT on an EBT card funds will be put on that EBT card again - even if a family is no longer using the SNAP benefit at this time.
    • If a new EBT card is required please visit or call 877-382-2363.
    • If families received P-EBT on a P-EBT card in the past, funds will be put on their child's P-EBT card again. If a new P-EBT card is required visit

    For any additional questions regarding P-EBT benefits please refer to You can also reach out to the Main Office at McAvinnue and we will connect you with Mrs. De La Luz for support.
