NJ SNAP: Using your EBT Card to Access P-EBT Benefits

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT about Pandemic EBT/School Meal Assistance: If you received a new green EBT card recently with “Way2Go” written on it, do not ignore it or destroy it! The cards are part of pandemic assistance from September, and do not look like a regular EBT card. They may even appear to have expired on December 30, but they are not expired. The card is legitimate and should have funds loaded onto it for much-needed food assistance. Contact the LSNJLAW hotline at 1-888-LSNJ-LAW (1-888-576-5529) for more information
