All campuses are equipped with computerized point-of-sale stations where students enter an assigned PIN number or tell the cashier their name. Each time a customer makes a purchase it is recorded in the system and is automatically deducted from the account balance. Parents are encouraged to prepay for their student’s meals or beverage. Pre-payments should include the students name, grade and school name to insure proper credit. Cash or checks are accepted. Payments can be made online at . Students account history may be obtained from the Campus Cafeteria Manager or online with a Parent Online account. Parents are responsible for all charges on their student’s account. Elementary students are allowed to charge up to $6.50. No charges are allowed at the Jr. High and High School campuses. Students who are over the charge limit will be offered a cheese sandwich, choice of fruit or vegetable, and a cup of water.

The District serving method has been approved by the United States Department of Agriculture, designed to reduce food waste and food cost without jeopardizing the nutritional integrity of the meals served. The student may choose to not take an item he or she does not intend to consume. Students must take a minimum of 3 items, one of which must be a fruit or vegetable in order for the meal to be counted as a reimbursable meal. Any meal with fewer than 3 components will be charged A la Carte pricing and will not qualify as a reimbursable meal for students receiving free or reduced price meals.

Free and reduced price meals are available to students whose family income meets certain criteria. If you think you might qualify, an application must be completed for the family. Free and Reduced Priced Meal Applications will be available to each student during the first week of school. If your financial situation changes at any time during the year you may obtain an application at the campus office or the School Nutrition Department at 701 East Main, Whitehouse, Texas (located at the Holloway Campus). Applications can also be submitted online at . Only one application per household is needed.
