P-EBT Portal

DCFS Opens P-EBT Portal

The P-EBT Parent Portal allows parents to view and receive information about their child’s P-EBT benefits.

First, you will need to create a CAFÉ account. You can view detailed instructions on how to do so here.

Now that you've created a CAFÉ account, you can navigate to the P-EBT Portal within CAFÉ. To link a student's P-EBT case to your CAFE account, you will need the following information:


  • Student Date of Birth
  • Student First Name
  • Student Last Name
  • LOCAL Student ID - GET this FROM CHILDS SCHOOL, Powerschool Parent/Student Portal (students can log in with their google username or password), or previous report cards (NOT end of Year)
  • School Name

Providing this information allows you to view your child’s P-EBT case.

If you have more than one child receiving P-EBT, you can link each of their cases to your CAFÉ account by following the same steps.

NOTE: It is important to log out of CAFÉ at the end of each session. Otherwise, if you return later and try to log in, your account may be temporarily frozen and you may be unable to log in again until the system resets at midnight.
