What is Pandemic EBT, and how do I receive it?

New Jersey is giving $416.10 per child to every family who has children in school in Camden, regardless of their immigration status. All families will automatically receive this benefit.

This benefit is intended to cover the cost of the extra groceries that families have had to purchase since their children have not been eating meals in school.

If you already receive SNAP, the benefit will be added directly onto your EBT card. It should appear in June.

If you do not currently receive SNAP, the state will be mailing an EBT card to the house that you have on file with the school. These are supposed to be mailed out in June. Please carefully read the instructions that are mailed to you in order to activate your card.

If you do not receive your card, or you have the wrong address on file with KIPP, please call or text our hotline at 856-295-1999.
