Mr. Lewis Shepard, Food Services Administrator for Richton School District, inquired about P-EBT cards and received the following information.
“The card processing vendor company identified that they mistakenly did not include Richton’s students in their original P-EBT card mail out. They are working right now to get cards mailed out to all of the students that Richton submitted. We apologize for this error and the difficulties that this has caused for parents and district staff.
Each of your district’s students who were eligible for free and reduced-price lunch during the 2020-21 school year and were submitted on your data file should expect to receive a P-EBT card in the mail loaded with Summer 2021 P-EBT benefits in the amount of $375. Cards should arrive in the next 7-10 days.”
