PBC Launches Grocery Card Program

The Palm Beach County Community Services Department has launched a new Grocery Card Program for eligible Palm Beach County residents. The department is issuing $400 pre-loaded grocery cards to be used for food purchases within the county. The program will end when the funding source has been depleted.

To qualify, at least one or more individuals within a household must meet the following criteria:

• Qualifies for unemployment or experienced a reduction of household income, or incurred significant costs, or experienced other financial hardships due to COVID-19; and,

• Has not received a food card in the past from the Palm Beach County Community Services Department; and,

• Has a household income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline.

All participants must be able to provide documentation to prove they were impacted financially by the COVID-19 crisis. Applications must be submitted online. This program is a limited-time offer and is subject to funding availability.
