From Hefkervelt:

The special food assistance benefits debit cards with $416.10 per eligible child will be delivered starting next week July 8 . Those who do not have food stamps but are still eligible for the lunch program will receive a debit card mailed a P-EBT card beginning next week and should expect to get their card in the mail starting the week of July 13th.

In NY:
Families participating in SNAP received $193 in May, and $227 in June for each child. All other eligible households should expect to receive more information via mail sometime in July.

Card has a 1-888 phone number printed on it. It should instead be 1-800.

Pretty much any unprepared food, including candy and soda.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
