Summer EBT

To see if your child is eligible and/or apply for this benefit, please contact your child’s school. More information can be found in this page and in these FAQ documents translated in multiple languages.

If you are not interested in receiving the Summer EBT benefit, please notify your school district before the end of the school year. If you receive a Summer EBT card and do not plan to use the benefits, please destroy the card.

Summer EBT benefits are specific to the child and cannot be given to another person. 

If you received a Summer EBT card, but your child does not receive free or reduced-price school meals and you believe you are not eligible for these benefits, please do not use the card and contact your school to confirm. If you received the card in error, please destroy the card.


Federal regulations do not allow for the replacement of stolen Summer EBT benefits. If you suspect your PIN was stolen, you can call 1-800-997-3333, go to or download the ConnectEBT app in the Apple App store or Google Play store to review your transactions and/or change your PIN to protect any remaining benefits. 

Summer EBT benefits are available for four months.  Summer EBT benefits expire 122 days from the date the benefits were first loaded onto your Summer EBT card. Federal regulations do not allow benefits to be replaced after they have been expunged.
