Donate P-EBT Funds

If you would like to donate the P-EBT funds from the Philadelphia school district to families in need, you have two options:

  1. Donate the monetary equivalent to Mutual Aid Philly. In this case, you use the card yourself (since the cards are not legally transferable) and donate the monetary equivalent on Action Network or Venmo (search @mutualaidphl).
  2. Sign up to sponsor a family. In this case, you’ll sign up by checking the “Donate EBT groceries” option on our form . One of our volunteers will match you with a family that needs groceries, let you know their grocery list, and connect you with the family to schedule a contactless delivery. You will shop and deliver the groceries. If there is a language barrier, our volunteers with act as translators for the process.

The money donated to Mutual Aid Philly is used for both for direct monetary aid (up to $100 per family) and to pay for groceries, prescriptions, and cleaning supplies that we deliver to community members. All donations go to community members in need and we keep a public spreadsheet of transactions on our website for transparency.
