Pandemic EBT Benefits (P-EBT)
P-EBT benefits are Food Assistance benefits issued to the parents of children enrolled in the Federal Free/Reduced School Lunch program. Active SNAP recipients receive these benefits on their current EBT card. Those not enrolled in SNAP receive a P-EBT benefit card in the mail. More information about this program can be found here, https://www.nj.gov/humanservices/njsnap/pebt.shtml.
If you have lost your P-EBT card and need it replaced, you may contact us at 201-368-4200 to request a replacement card.
