Update Student Address

The California Department of Social Services, in collaboration with the California Department of Education, is administering the federal P-EBT program in response to COVID-19 related school closures. P-EBT provides food benefits to help families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals through the federal School Breakfast or National School Lunch Programs.
Eligibility will be handled through the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System(CALPADS). There is no P-EBT application for schools or families to fill out. P-EBT cards will be mailed out to the address on file in CALPADS for each eligible child. Parents will need to update student address records by March 12, 2021 to ensure P-EBT cards are mailed to the correct address. Using P-EBT benefits does not impact immigration status. The public charge rule does not apply to P-EBT benefits. Please see the attached flyer for parents on how to apply for P-EBT benefits.
