Status of P-EBT Benefits and Voices of Hope - August 7

Status of P-EBT Benefits 

Second Harvest has received several questions recently regarding the status of P-EBT benefits.  A new COVID-19 stimulus bill is currently being negotiated in Congress. The final content of this bill will determine if pandemic-enhanced benefits, including P-EBT, will be renewed. Families can still apply for the current P-EBT benefit until Aug. 31, or before the start of their child’s school year (whichever comes first). Second Harvest will continue to provide updates as we learn them about P-EBT and other food-related benefits. For more information on P-EBT, click here

Voices of Hope 

"I don’t have a vehicle and usually walk to the food bank in my area. But I haven’t been able to go there since the middle of March. My neighbors came home with extra boxes from Second Harvest, and I got three - one of each. You cannot imagine how grateful I am to have oranges and strawberries for breakfast! And milk and dairy too. Thank you so much for all you do!" -Kelly
