School Lunch $$ Solutions

Have you had your child come home with the stamp on their hand indicating they have no money left for lunch?  Or worse, your kid comes home starving and says they didn’t eat lunch because YOU didn’t give them lunch money? 

It doesn’t matter that they didn’t tell you they were out of money, or that they could have made their lunch and brought it….nope, Mom guilt rears its head anyway.

I had a phone call this morning from my daughter.  “Mom, how much is school lunch?  Dad doesn’t know.”  It reminded me that I’ve found a way to avoid that Mom guilt! 

 MealPay Plus handles those school lunch balances for you!  It allows you to do the following on-line (from the convenience of your computer or phone!):

  • Check current balance
  • Make a payment
  • View what your child has purchased

This website also has the added feature of receiving an automatic email when the balance reaches a certain low level, or automatically add $ to the account from a registered credit card.

I just added money for my kids and my stepsons and it took less than 5 minutes.  It is REALLY convenient and there aren’t any service fees.  It certainly beats that last minute request for money from your kids as you are walking out the door or the Mom guilt.

I don’t know if this is available nationwide, but it is certainly available for anyone with kids in Jeffco schools in Colorado.  Have you tried it?  What do you think?
