Pre-Payment Options

Please take advantage of the following options to prepay your child’s meal account. Prepaid meal accounts help the lunch lines go faster and give students more time to eat, relax, and play. Prepayment also gives you the peace of mind of not having to worry about looking for lunch money everyday or worry that it might get lost, stolen, or used for things other than school meals. We have three options for prepayment: online, check, or cash.

1. Online Prepayment

Online prepayment is by far the most popular and efficient way to prepay for school meals. Online payments are a simple, safe, and secure way to make payments to your child’s account. The system allows you to prepay for meals online using a debit or credit card, check your child’s account balance, and see when your child is eating. There is no longer a delay in processing your child’s payment.

2. Check

Personal Check: If you send a check with your child, please write your child’s name and/or student ID number on the check. Checks are deposited into your child’s account the same day they are received.

3. Cash

Although we accept cash, checks are more secure, Cash should not be dropped off at the school office. If you must send it with your child, please place it in a sealed envelope and write your child’s complete name, student ID number, and the amount enclosed in the envelope. All cash should be hand-delivered to a Child Nutrition employee.


All students using their prepaid accounts are required to enter their PIN numbers into a PIN pad to access their accounts. The only exception is at Creekside Early Learning Center, where they will be provided with an ID card. The PIN number is available at your school office or can be found on class schedules. The Child Nutrition staff verifies all children by their uploaded school pictures.
