School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families. This is a great time for your children to expand their palate for new textures, flavors, smells and tastes. All students automatically, upon enrollment, have an active lunch account in the cafeteria. Through this account, your child can access the funds you've deposited to purchase meals and a la carte items during breakfast or lunch. 

 

School Menu and Ala-Carte Prices

 

 

The Villages Charter School recognizes that unpaid meal charges represent a difficult and complex issue for the families we serve and our food service department. To prevent children from accruing unpaid meal charges, we must balance our desire to provide for hungry children lacking the means to pay for meals with the demands of maintaining the financial viability of our school food service operation. Students are allowed a credit limit to charge meals & a la carte items.

The MEAL CHARGE POLICY explains these details and other valuable information in greater detail. Parents and/or guardians are responsible for all charges and must be paid be reenrollment for the following year can occur.

You can place restrictions and spending limits on your Childs purchases from the EZSchoolPay website or on the App. See instruction below.
