Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Edmond Public Schools provides students with nutritious and great-tasting meals. We have a commitment to achieving high quality and excellence while meeting our students’ nutritional needs each and every school day.
As stated in the Oklahoma State Department of Education Child Nutrition Manual, the school district "is not required to provide meals if payment is not made for the current day's meal or if funds in a student's account are not sufficient to cover the cost of the meal." However, Edmond Public Schools, recognizing the link between nutrition and education, will extend the following charge policy as a courtesy to students and parents:
All Grade Levels: No "a la carte" items may be charged (i.e., resulting in a negative balance). "Negative" charges may only be made for milk or meal purchases. Students may not exceed a $15 charge limit. Once the student can no longer accumulate negative charges, the student will be offered, as a courtesy, a complimentary meal of toast & milk at breakfast or a sandwich & milk at lunch. All account balances will be carried over into the next school year.
If you feel that your family may qualify for Free or Reduced-Price Meals, please submit an application as soon as possible. (See link at the top of this page.) If you need assistance, please call the Child Nutrition Office at 405-340-2889.
Meal accounts may be registered online at www.mypaymentsplus.com. With an online account, parents have the ability to make payments, monitor purchases and balances, and even set up automatic low-balance notifications and/or deposits to make sure funds are always available for their students.
