An important change will be implemented with the start of this school year with regard to the www.MyLunchMoney.com service. Here are the details:
Families who use a credit or debit card to deposit money into their child’s meal account via www.MyLunchMoney.com will now pay an additional $1.95 per-transaction fee.
Why is this?
Historically, the district’s Nutrition & Food Services Department has paid this cost—more than $25,000 annually—and because the department is a self-funded operation, it is no longer able to absorb these fees (which are similar to ATM and banking fees).
What other options are there?
The great news is that the district will still accept checks or cash for deposit into student meal accounts, which does not carry a transaction fee; parents are not required to use the www.MyLunchMoney.com service, which is available for the sake of convenience. Better still, www.MyLunchMoney.com’s additional services, such as checking a student’s meal history, receiving low-balance notifications, and setting spending limits, are still free! Users can sign up at www.MyLunchMoney.com.
Please feel free to contact the Nutrition & Food Services Department at (802) 264-5706 or e-mail Director Steve Davis with any questions! For technical assistance, please contact www.MyLunchMoney.com at 1-800-479-3531.
