Prepaid Meals

  • Students are not allowed to charge meals. To avoid student money from being lost or forgotten, you may prepay for your child's breakfast, lunch, and snacks by depositing money into your child's account in one of the following ways:

    • Send a check ($5 minimum) made payable to R-H Food Service.
    • Send cash to school with your child.
    • Use Visa or Mastercard, credit or debit card using our new secure automated system by logging on to or calling the toll free phone number, (866) 727-3053. 
    • E-Checks. MealPay now accepts checks electronically. When paying online at, this is now a payment option.

    • Mealpay charges a fee of 4.75% on transaction amounts less than $100. For example, if you make a $40.00 transaction the fee is only $1.90. 
    • The district does not charge the fee, mealpay plus does; however, the district will pay the fee if your credit card purchase is greater than $100, you will save $4.75 or greater.
