  • Pandemic EBT 2.0

    P-EBT is coming back! 

    Because our students:

    • Recieve free meals during normal school
    • We were closed for remote learning
    • Our students are missing meals due to hybrid schooling

    ALL K-12 STUDENTS WILL RECIEVE P-EBT

    What is Pandemic EBT 2.0?

    Last spring, USDA came out with P-EBT to make up for the missed meals usually served to students in schools, with money in food stamps. If you wanted it, you had to call DSHS and apply. This time around, there is no applications. Your student's card will come in the mail, with the first installment of payments already on them.

    Keep these cards! More benefits are planning to come!

    Do you have any questions about P-EBT? If so, call the P-EBT Contact Center at 1-833-518-0282 or visit www.dshs.wa.gov/pebt.

    HYBRID LEARNING FOOD SCHEDULE:

    K-12:

    Students in school will receive a hot lunch in the classrooms. They will also receive a breakfast before they leave to be eaten before school the next morning. On the days that they are remote at home, bus deliveries will provide them with a breakfast and lunch. If busing is not available for meal deliveries, a robocall will be sent out to inform parents (meals are always available at the Elementary School). On Wednesdays, students will receive meals via bus deliveries.

    DUE TO BUS SCHEDULING ISSUES, ALL SOUTH BEND RESIDENTS ON A & B SCHOOL DAYS WILL NOT GET BUSED MEAL DELIVERIES. THEY WILL HAVE A REMOTE LOCATION AT THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CAFETERIA FROM 8 AM TO 2 PM.

    Preschool:

    AM student will get a breakfast to be eaten in the classroom at school, they will take home a lunch as they leave. PM will receive a lunch in the classroom and be given a breakfast to take home for the next morning. On the days your student is not in school, bus deliveries will still be coming to deliver meals to preschool families that want it.

    If you have any questions, or have not signed up for meal deliveries, and would like to have your child receive meals on their off days, please email me at bjohnson@southbendschools.org, or call 360-875-6041 ext 3120.
