Paying for School Meals

We offer a variety of convenient ways to pay for school meals. Checks and cash are always accepted by the manager of the lunchroom either as a pre-paid deposit to a student's account or for purchasing individual meals or milk/juice. Please make checks payable to Nutrition Services.

Meals can also be paid for with a credit card online or by phone using PayPams.

Note: PayPams require the student's Student ID number or meal account pin number (provided by the school). The Student ID number can be found on report cards or by accessing The Source. PayPams charges users a payment transaction of $ 1.95 per student for each transaction. Learn more about PayPams: English, Spanish.

Your child may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. All students who qualify receive meals free of charge. Learn more and apply for free or reduced priced meal benefits.

If your student qualifies for free or reduced price meals, discounted or free school services may also be available. Ask your school for more information about benefits available at your school as benefits vary from school to school.
