Pre-Paid Meal Accounts

Pre-Pay for Meals

For your convenience we offer pre-paid meals to our students. Pre-paid meal prices for elementary students are $37 and for junior high and high school students they are $42. Our cafeterias have a computerized system that gives each student a PIN (personal identification number.) Money can be placed into their private account for them to access for meals. For each $42/$37 ($5 with reduced application on file) per student that is paid into their account, one (1) bonus meal will be given. If paying by check, please make the check payable to North Colonie Food Service. This system is easy for students to use and eliminates worries about having the correct change in the morning or losing money.
