Emergency Food Service Program

Emergency Food Service Program

Food Service Distribution will take place each Monday, June 1 - June 29, at Rich East High School from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
 
 
 
To ensure that children who rely on free or reduced-price meals at school are able to get the nutrition they need, USDA is working with states to continue providing meals to students. Please visit https://www.fns.usda.gov/meals4kids to find an interactive map of locations that are providing meals for people seeking food assistance. Families can use this tool to find directions to nearby sites as well as hours of operation and contact information.
 
 
For additional local sites, see the table below. Township boundary restrictions may apply. 

 

 

Emergency Benefits for Families that Receive Free and Reduced Meals at School

The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) launched the Pandemic EBT application for families on May 1 at https://abe.illinois.gov/abe/access/. P-EBT is a new special benefit that can help families buy food for their school age children who would normally receive National School Lunch Program (NSLP) free or reduced-priced meals when schools are in session. 
 
Families that currently receive SNAP benefits do not need to apply for P-EBT benefits. These additional P-EBT benefits will be loaded into Illinois LINK EBT accounts along with regular SNAP benefits. Families who do not currently receive SNAP benefits but do have children who receive NSLP free or reduced-priced meals will need to apply directly with IDHS. The fastest way for families to receive benefits is to complete the application for P-EBT available online (Click “Apply for Benefits” at the link.) A paper application in English and Spanish is also available and can be submitted by email to DHS.FCS.PEBT@illinois.gov. IDHS created a flyer to help families with the application process.
