I. Purpose

 The goal of Greenville City Schools is to provide students with healthy meals each day. However, unpaid charges place a large financial burden on our Food Services Department. The purpose of this policy is to insure compliance with federal reporting requirements for the USDA Child Nutrition Program, and to provide oversight and accountability for the collection of outstanding student meal balances.  

 The intent of this policy is to establish uniform meal account procedures throughout our district. The provisions of this policy pertain to regular priced school breakfast and lunch meals only. While the USDA Child Nutrition Program does not require that a student who pays for regular priced meals be served a meal without payment, Greeneville City Schools provides this policy as a courtesy to those students that may forget or lose their lunch money.  


II. Policy

 Full Pay Students - Elementary and Middle School Students will pay for meals at the district’s published standard rate each day. A student will be allowed to charge a maximum of three (3) meals to their account after the balance reaches zero. Once a student has charged those three meals, he/she will not be allowed to charge a la carte items, however he/she will be offered a reimbursable meal which will be charged to the child’s meal account at the standard rate.

 High School Students - High School students must prepay or pay cash at the register for all meals and a la carte purchases. When a student’s account balance reaches zero, no a la carte items will be sold to the student, and he/she will only be offered a reimbursable meal which will be charged to the child’s meal account at the standard rate.


Free Meal Benefit - Free status students will be allowed to receive a free breakfast and lunch each day. A la carte purchases must be prepaid.

 Reduced Meal Benefit - Reduced status students will pay for breakfast and lunch at the district’s published standard rate per day. A student will be allowed to charge a maximum of six (6) meals to their account after the balance reaches zero. Once a student has charged those six meals, he/she will not be allowed to charge a la carte items; however, he or she will be offered a reimbursable meal which will be charged to the child’s meal account at the standard rate.


Teachers – Allowed to charge at the discretion of the Cafeteria Manager and Principal.


Parents/Guardians are responsible for meal payment to the food service program. Notices of low or deficit balances will be sent to parents/guardians at regular intervals during the school year.


No charging will be allowed the last two weeks of every school year to make certain that all debts are paid in full by the end of the year.


All school cafeterias possess computerized point of sale/cash register systems that maintain records of all monies deposited and spent for each student and said records are available by setting up an account at https://www2.mypaymentsplus.com/welcome or by speaking with the cafeteria manager. Students/Parents/Guardians pay for meals in advance via through mypaymentsplus website, with a check payable to Greeneville City Schools’ Cafeteria, or with cash.
