FAQ about Meal Payments
Q. How can I pay for my child’s meals?
A. The fastest and easiest method is to pay online by visiting www.myschoolbucks.com or using the My School Bucks app. You may also send a check or cash with your child to school. Please put the child’s name and lunch number on the check. Cash should be placed in an envelope and labeled with the child’s name and Lunch number. Both cash and checks should be given directly to school nutrition employees only or dropped in locked deposit boxes used expressly for this purpose.
Q. Can I pay for my child’s meals by the month or year?
A. Yes. We have created a payment schedule, which is located to the right of this page, to aid in calculating the costs per month or by year.
Q. If there is money in my child’s account, can the funds expire?
A. No. Money left on your student’s account will remain there until used.
Q. May I request a refund for the money left on my student's account?
A. Yes. You may request a refund. Refunds under $5.00 may be handled at your school location. For a refund of anything over $5.00, please email email@example.com.

Q. If my child was approved for Reduced Price Meals, do I need to send a payment for his/her meals?
A. For the 2023-2024 school year, the Georgia Department of Education will fund the cost to provide meals at no cost to families approved for reduced-price meals. Therefore, while your child’s meal status is reduced, he/she will have access to breakfast and lunch at no expense to your family during this school year.
