SUN Bucks (Summer EBT)

Starting this summer, you can buy more food for your child with California SUN Bucks, also called Summer-EBT. SUN Bucks works just like CalFresh, but for the summer.

Children who qualify for free or reduced-price school meals through a school meal application or an Alternative Income Form, or get CalFresh, CalWORKs, or Medi-Cal, are automatically enrolled.

If your student qualifies for free or reduced-price meals, you don't need to do anything to sign up. SUN Bucks provides $40 per month for food for June, July and August 2024 ($120 total).
