Get $250-302 for each school-age child to spend on food

Deadline for P-EBT: Tuesday, June 30, 2020

The State of Missouri and Illinois have created P-EBT to support the unforeseen burden of buying more food when normally children may have been fed at schools. This is a one-time payment to support eligible families. Don’t let this support pass you by, please share with other foster/adoptive families that may qualify.
