Paying for School Meals is Easier than Ever

What is MyLunchMoney.com?

MyLunchMoney.com is a convenient and easy to use credit card prepayment system that allows parents to add money to their child’s meal account at the school they attend.

How does it work?
When the child goes through the food service line the money for their meal is deducted from their account balance, eliminating the need to send money each day for lunch or breakfast. Parents are able to set recurring payments based on a low balance amount that they specify. Participation in the District has been tremendous and we encourage all parents to take advantage of this service.

Where do I find customer support?
Please be advised that www.myLunchMoney.com customer service has changed office locations to accommodate all time zones as well as provide you access to live customer support. Beginning Monday, April 17, 2006, the new www.myLunchMoney.com Support hours will be 8:00 am to 7:00 pm EST. In addition, both administrators and parents will be able to speak with a live representative by calling 1-800-479-3531 option 5. This support line should be your first call if you experience any problems or have any questions about this service.

With the summer vacation fast approaching, parents will need to check their child’s current meal account balance and determine how much more money will be needed for the rest of the school year. In addition, please pay attention to the low balance ‘trigger’ amount in www.myLunchMoney.com and either shut it off or change it so that there isn’t any unplanned prepayment posted during the last few days of school. Rest assured that any remaining balance on your child’s account will carry forward to the next school year.

We will shut off the ability to post payments to www.myLunchMoney.com on May 25, 2006 for the duration of the summer vacation period. Normal operations should resume on July 31, 2006.
