Method of Payment:
 Online credit card, cash or check. You may pay online at My School Bucks
Make check payable to Zachary Community School Board Child Nutrition Program
Write one check per child: In the memo section of the check, write the student’s name and point of service LUNCH NUMBER, if known.
Meal Payments: Prepayment for meals by the month, week or year is recommended. Students spend less time in line if meals are prepaid. You can maximize the time your child has to eat lunch by taking care of meal payments at the beginning of the month or week rather than in the lunch line. If you pay for meals, it is recommended that you send August’s payment on the first day of school.
Parents of Elementary students: Place cash payments in a sealed envelope that is labeled with the student’s name, the purpose for which money is intended, and amount of cash or check sent.

Those students who received free or reduced price benefits last year will begin the new school year on the same status. However, a new application must be submitted and processed for the new school year in order for meal benefits to continue.
