Parents of Every NYC Public School Student to Receive $420 to Buy Food

In August, parents of every New York City public school student will receive $420 per enrolled child. You’ll get a letter from a state office that you’ve never heard of along with what is called a PEBT card in your child’s name. 

So don’t throw it away because it is real. The program is part of the stimulus bill that Congress passed in March. The $420 on the card is to buy food at supermarkets and even green markets.

Families will receive the money that would have been spent on school lunches if kids had been in school in the past four months during the coronavirus pandemic.
