Meals at School
Here’s how it works: Parents put money on their child’s account at www.MyLunchMoney.com or by bringing cash to the cafeteria before school. At lunchtime, children collect their lunch cards in the cafeteria. When children get hot lunch, they show their card to the cafeteria staff, who will make sure that the child’s account is charged the appropriate amount. Parents can monitor the balance of their child’s card on the MyLunchMoney website.
