Dear Parent or Guardian,
Eligible Illinois students will continue to receive food assistance through our weekly program, as well as through a new program called the “Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program.” If your student would have received free or reduced lunch while attending school, you may participate in this new program.
To ensure you receive your benefit:
- If you have not already done so, complete this form to determine your eligibility for free or reduced meal status. You can complete an eligibility application at any time, if your circumstances change. NOTE: Families that are currently receiving SNAP, TANF, or income eligible Medicaid do not need to take any action.
- Ensure that your mailing address on file at the school is current. Your address must be current to receive the benefit. Check your address is correct at Home Access Center; call your school if you need to update your address.
The Illinois Department of Human Services should begin issuing new P-EBT cards to all known eligible students in March 2021. All eligible students will receive benefits for all eligible school days, back to the beginning of this school year.
If you have any questions regarding the mailing address or your student’s free and reduced-price status, please reach out to North High School 630-795-8400 or South High School 630-795-8500.
