Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) provides nutrition assistance to families whose children have lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to COVID-19 related school closures. Families will receive money on a new or existing EBT card to help make up for these lost meals.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, known as the Food Supplement Program, or FSP, in Maryland)
SNAP is a nutrition assistance program that helps individuals and families buy food. The program provides a monthly sum on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which is used like a debit card at participating grocery stores and other food retail outlets.
