The City of Chicago recently announced all CPS families will receive P-EBT cards in the mail in March, which will be loaded with money meant to offset the costs of school-provided meals for children. These cards can be reloaded by the government with funds in the future and can be used like a debit card to purchase food at any grocery store that accepts Link cards.
We have been asked by many of our supporters if they can forward these resources to Common Pantry. If you’d like to donate any portion of these funds to Common Pantry for our neighbors in need, we ask that you use your P-EBT cards for purchasing groceries for your own family and then make a financial contribution on our website here. We are limited in space for storing food and can make our dollar go further in terms of purchasing food.
For every $1 donated, we can provide four meals. Learn more about who we serve and our programming www.commonpantry.org/donations
