The course will support in developing understanding of the components involved in creating an agricultural business. At the end of the course, participants are asked to present what was learned in the course and present it in class as evidence of growth and understanding.

Use Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) with bg视讯

February 1, 2024


How to Use Your P-EBT Benefits for Food Before They Expire + Receive Free Extra Health Bucks at Farmers Markets.

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) is a temporary federal food benefit program that was issued to ALL NYC public school families to buy food to make up for missed school meals while students were enrolled in remote or hybrid learning. P-EBT benefits can be used anywhere EBT cards are accepted for the purchase of food, including supermarkets and farmers markets. It is important to note that many P-EBT benefits may be expiring soon. Please see below  for more information on when these valuable benefits expire and how to receive free extra Health Bucks coupons for the purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables when you use your P-EBT card at farmers markets. 

Who received P-EBT? 

Since 2020, P-EBT payments have been provided to ALL NYC public school students, ages 3-21, regardless of income or immigration status. New York distributed multiple rounds of the P-EBT, including $120 per child for the summer of 2023, as well as at least $391 per child for the summer of 2022 and the 2021-22 school year.

How were P-EBT benefits distributed to families?

  • For families who are already enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the additional P-EBT benefits were loaded onto their existing EBT cards.
  • Families who were not enrolled in SNAP were mailed new EBT cards where the P-EBT benefits were loaded for each round of distribution. 

When does P-EBT expire? 

P-EBT benefits automatically expire 274 days, about nine months, after they were last used. Whenever families use the benefits, the timeline will reset, and they will have another 274 days before the funds expire. For many families, the last round of benefits was issued around May 2023, meaning those who have yet to use them may see their funds start to expire in February 2024. 

  • To find out exactly when your specific P-EBT benefits expire, call the P-EBT Hotline at  (833) 452-0096.
  • If you lost your P-EBT card, you can get a replacement by calling 1-888-328-6399.

Use your P-EBT card at Farmers Markets and receive bonus Health Bucks!

Use your P-EBT card at any NYC farmers market, and for every $2 you spend, you’ll receive an additional $2 in Health Bucks (up to $10 per visit) to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables! ALL bg视讯 food access sites can accept P-EBT cards; we operate over 60 Greenmarkets and Farmstands across NYC. Visit our website to find a location near you. Simply bring your P-EBT card to the bg视讯 information tent, and a staff member will swipe your card and provide you with SNAP tokens that can be used to purchase any edible food item from local farmers. SNAP tokens distributed at bg视讯 Greenmarkets never expire.

The 2024 Health Bucks are now available!

Sign Our Petition: Save Community Composting

November 17, 2023

Hello New YorkersWe need your voice. Sign our petition. Urge the Mayor to halt the elimination of community compost programs!

Click Here to Sign.

 

Our Letter

Dear Mayor Adams and Commissioner Tisch,

I am a concerned citizen who wants to live in a sustainable New York City and I understand that community composting has been cut.

The New York City Compost Project and bg视讯 serve millions of New Yorkers throughout the five boroughs, providing food scrap collections, organics processing, composting outreach and community education. I petition you today to save these programs in light of announced budget cuts.

Community composting organizations, including bg视讯, Big Reuse, LES Ecology Center, Earth Matter NY, New York Botanical Garden, Queens Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden collectively:

  • Divert more than 8.3 million pounds of organic waste from landfills each year.

  • Produce and distribute hundreds of thousands of pounds of compost to over 325 community groups, parks, 85 street tree care events, and thousands of individuals each year. 

  • Engage over 1,000 yearly participants in Master Composter activities through food, farming, and composting opportunities across the city.

  • Provide compost outreach and education to over 600,000 New Yorkers annually, making them aware of food waste's contributions to the climate crisis while providing the opportunity to address this critical issue.

  • Operate 6 community composting sites - providing the most sustainable and equitable form of organics waste management.

Cutting community composting and outreach programs will result in the elimination of these invaluable services and the loss of over 115 green jobs. 

Community composting programs transform New Yorkers' waste into valuable resources, providing essential soil for our parks, gardens, and playgrounds. These programs serve as a crucial tool in combating climate change. Furthermore, given the anticipated delays in the expansion of the Curbside Composting program, the success of such an initiative in New York City hinges on a robust outreach and community composting network to educate and engage residents.

I urge the Mayor and City Council to halt these massive cuts and to guarantee full funding to these programs for the future. These cost-effective programs contribute to a more liveable city with fewer rats, cleaner streets, and healthier soils, while cutting waste destined for landfills or incinerators.
