E~FUNDS - Technical Issues

Food Service

DeKalb County Eastern CSD Food Service is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating habits and providing nutritious foods. Your children are our top priority! DeKalb County Eastern "lunch ladies" (as they are known to the students) take pride in serving tasty, nutritious, student-accepted meals with love and a smile. We consider ourselves blessed to have "hands that serve, hearts that care."

E~FUNDS (Technical Difficulties)

E-funds are experiencing technical difficulties and at this time we are accepting cash/check only. Your child will still be offered a meal and their account will be charged. Thank you for your patience as we are currently working with the outside agency to resume normal operations as quickly as possible.

Federal Waiver Discontinued

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, school corporations have been operating with the use of a federal waiver that allowed meals to be fed to every child free of charge through the end of school year (SY) 2021-2022. The use of this waiver will not be available during 2022-2023. DeKalb County Eastern will return to the traditional eligibility requirements for free and reduced and paid meals. Please read the parent letter below for more information.

Supply Shortage

Due to the food and supply shortages that we are currently facing, we will be limiting the Extra’s for Main Entrée’s, to only 1 Extra Main Entrée a day, per child.

We are working closely with our distributors and manufacturers to secure the items needed to support our program. While it is out intention to serve the posted menu items each day, please know that this could change due to the current shortage's.

Sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to reevaluate this decision in the near future. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
