Customers have the ability to add money on their child’s cafeteria accounts; view fund balances and meal purchase history, and receive e-mail notifications when their balance goes below the amount they specified.

Check:  Write a check to FCPS Food and Nutrition Services and bring the check to the cafeteria in the morning. Include your child’s name and teacher’s name.  Parents who want their checks for meals only should write “MEALS ONLY” on their check. 

Cash:  Cash May be brought to the cafeteria in the morning to deposit on your student(s) account, or student may pay cash on a daily basis.

A notice will be given to your child when they have 3 lunches left. 

Free or Reduced Meals

Food and Nutrition Services mail application forms to all families in August. Forms must be completed and returned each year for new or renewed consideration.

A la Carte

Snacks are available as a supplement to a school or home lunch.

Healthy and Safe Meals

We strongly encourage healthy lunches and discourage students and families from bringing in fast food, carbonated soft drinks, and glass bottles. 

Birthday Treats

In response to health and safety procedures, birthday treats, to include treat bags, will not be accepted. Parents are encouraged to dedicate a book in their child’s name to be read on their birthday and can remain in the teacher’s classroom library. 

Birthdays are special for children. Each child gets a birthday pencil and has his/her name called on the TV announcements in addition to classmates & the teacher making the child feel a little special throughout the day. Birthday party invitations cannot be distributed in class or through the Thursday Folder unless you are inviting the entire class.
