Parents can deposit money directly into their child's meal account and can receive emails by clicking on the link "" website and setting up an account.


For parents with more than one child in the Meade School District, payments for all children can be done from the same online account.


Similarly, automatic email updates about low account balances or negative balances for each child is available.


For those who choose not to take advantage of the online service, Meade Food Service will continue to accept cash or check. When paying in that manner, the student's name and ID number must be included on the check and cash must be in an envelope with the students name and ID number written on the outside so payment is credited to the correct account.
