COVID-19 Resources for Testing, Groceries, and Pandemic EBT
New Jersey is giving $416.10 per child to every family whose children receive free or reduced price lunch, regardless of their immigration status. All families will automatically receive this benefit – no application is necessary.
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 should have already been added directly onto your EBT card. These benefits went out on July 8th. If you did not receive them, you should call the number on the back of your EBT card.
If you do not currently receive SNAP, the state has mailed an EBT card to the house that you have on file with the school.
If your card has not arrived yet, or if your address on file with the school is incorrect, you should go to the following website to inquire about your status and/or request a new card: https://www.nj.gov/humanservices/njsnap/home/contactus.shtml
Please note: if your child attends KIPP, when you submit the form, you should list the School District as “KIPP Cooper Norcross”. For School, list the specific KIPP school your child attended last year – KIPP Lanning Square Primary, KIPP Lanning Square Middle, or KIPP Whittier Middle.
If you still have trouble receiving the benefits, please call or text our hotline at 856-295-1999.
Additional information about Pandemic EBT, including what to do if your card is lost or stolen, can be found here: https://www.nj.gov/humanservices/njsnap/pebt.shtml
