As part of the Federal CARES Act, all NYC public school students will each receive $420 in food benefits in the form of an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card. Families who do not currently have an EBT or Medicaid card will receive an EBT card in the mail for each child in NYC Public Schools. These cards should arrive in July and August and will be sent to the address on record with the school.
If you do not have an EBT card, you will receive one in the mail. If you are concerned that the State of New York may not have your correct address, please call 1-888-328-6399.
