Student Lunch Accounts
The Nutrition Services Department procedures for monitoring student lunch accounts comply with USDA guidance on collection of debt for lunch accounts as well as avoiding debt in lunch accounts. The lunch account works similar to a bank debit account. Money is deposited into the account and then as purchases are made by the student, the money is drawn off of the account. The account is not to be used as a credit card account, where purchases accumulate for payment at a later date.
