School Nutrition Program
Please note: The 2017/2018 school year is an audit year for the program. The audit will be completed by the Child Nutrition department staff within DOE.
Campus Community School’s nutrition program has contracted Preferred Meals to provide healthy, National School Nutrition Program compliant meals.
All meals provided are free of artificial ingredients, reduced sodium, and artificial trans fats. All meals include whole grain products, nonfat or 1% milk, and a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables daily.
Campus Community School uses an automated meal system. Students will use a PIN to debit their meal account. Parent Account Management System (PayPAMS) is a web-based system that offers parents the ability to make pre-payments, set up recurring payment plans, and access student account balances.
Cash or checks may be used to pay for a lunch account. Checks should be payable to Campus Community School.
A student who depletes his or her meal account will be able to purchase no more than FIVE additional meals until the account has been paid in full. Money due for outstanding account balances must be paid by the end of each trimester. Final yearend report cards will not be issued until the balance is paid.
Free and Reduced Meal Benefit forms must be completed each year. During the first 30 OPERATING days, children with approved applications on file and their siblings may receive free/reduced price meals until a new Meal Benefit application is approved. However, if you are eligible for free meals through Health and Social Services, or are currently receiving food stamps, you DO NOT need to complete a Meal Benefit Form. This is a Federal law under which Campus Community School Meals Program operates. You may reapply or apply at anytime during the school year. If you are not eligible now, but have a decrease in your household’s gross income, become unemployed, or have an increase in your household size, you may fill out another School Meals Benefit Form.
