Parents: If you received a P-EBT card for your children but don’t need it, here are some ideas.
If you don’t need your P-EBT benefit, your neighbors do. Pandemic EBT is a short-term food assistance benefit to help Massachusetts families. P-EBT is also an economic stimulus for the state and local economy, just like the federal Economic Impact Payments sent to millions of Massachusetts families. If your household got a P-EBT card but does not need food assistance, you can use your P-EBT benefit to help your community:
1 – Buy groceries and donate that amount in cash to your local food pantry or food bank, or buy and donate food items from your local food bank’s “wish list.”
2 – Support local grocery stores and farmers markets that accept EBT.
NOTE: If you lost or never got a P-EBT card for your child, call DTA: 877-382-2363 to request a replacement card. For more information, visit Map-EBT.org
