The Colorado P-EBT program provided extra food benefits for families during the COVID-19 pandemic. Summer 2023 will be the last round of P-EBT benefits following the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. Here are some other ways your family can get help buying or finding food.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is an ongoing monthly food benefit that helps families to afford healthy food when budgets are tight. SNAP is available for all eligible families. You can receive SNAP benefits if you have limited income or high living expenses. If you are an immigrant, receiving SNAP for eligible children (such as U.S. citizen children) does not impact public charge.
Fill out a school meal application
Your household’s free and reduced-price school meals application can help your family access discounted internet and phone costs and secure additional funds for your school. Get an application at your school or district office, or visit your school website for more information.
Additional pandemic resources
You can find additional information on local resources that offer free food, meals, nutrition support and more on Hunger Free Colorado's Food Finder page. Use this valuable resource to find nearby food pantries and information on other programs like WIC, programs for older adults and resources for college students.
