Pandemic EBT Help

This is an important message from New Jerusalem Elementary District.


We believe you may be eligible to get $365 per child to help feed your family, in addition to any grab-n-go meals you may be getting.  Because schools are closed due to COVID-19, families who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals can get extra food benefits to help feed their children.  These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT.


Families will get up to $365 per eligible child on a P-EBT card.  You can use your P-EBT card like a debit card to buy food and groceries for your children.


Most families who receive CalFresh, CalWORKS, Medi-Cal or other social services benefits will get a P-EBT card in the mail before May 22.  Please keep an eye out for this card in the mail over the next few weeks.


Other families will need to complete a simple and quick online application before June 30, 2020.


For more information, visit or call New Jerusalem Elementary School District’s Food Service Office at 209-830-6363 ext: 1107.
