There have been many questions from parents related to the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) available through the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). This program provides benefits to children who receive free or reduced school meals under the National School Lunch Program.
District 207 determined early on to participate in the Seamless Meals Program in order to ensure we could provide meals to families. Currently, any family in District 207 can pick up 14 meals per student per week. Therefore, the district does not participate in the National School Lunch Program, which means parents of students attending Maine East, Maine South and Maine West are not eligible for P-EBT.
