We are please to announce that we are using the Meal Magic Corporation’s point-of-sale system in our school cafeterias. Meal Magic is a pre-paid system that provides convenience and accountability to our meal programs.
Your child will be given an “account” into which you may deposit money at any time and any monies from last year will be rolled over in his/her account. This account will allow your child to pay for meals or snacks just by using his/her account. Also, Meal Magic gives you certain controls for monitoring and controlling your child’s spending and eating habits.
Meal Magic will assist in providing better communications with you. With our Meal Magic system comes access to sendmoneytoschool.com. By using this website you will be able to view your child’s account history, including seeing the items your child has purchased. In addition, you will be able to deposit money into your child’s account with your debit/credit card and put limits on your child’s spending, if you so please. There is a $1.75 handling fee for all deposits.
If there is a need for financial assistance with the lunch programs please call the Food Service Office at (616) 493-8774 for CONFIDENTIAL help in applying for the free or reduced priced lunch program or download the application that applies to your child’s needs. Print and complete the application (see below) and mail it to:
Forest Hills Public Schools
Food Service Department
160 Alta Dale Drive SE
Ada, MI 49301
Free or Reduced Lunch Applications also are available in school offices. Our goal is to have healthy, happy, and well-fed children who learn to the best of their abilities. Please help us by keeping an adequate balance in your student’s lunch account.
Thank you for visiting the Food Service portion of the website. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.
Free and Reduced Meal Benefits
Meal Magic helps to prevent embarrassment that some children feel when they participate in the free and reduced meal program. All of the children’s accounts will look the same. As an added benefit you also will be able to fill out your application for Free-and-Reduced-Meal Benefits online using www.lunchapp.com. When using this site, you will no longer need to send in the paper application and in most cases your approval will be in one business day or less. Once the application is reviewed, you will receive a letter indicating if the application was approved as free, reduced, or denied. Please be aware that any benefits will begin only after the food service representative has reviewed your application. Benefits cannot begin immediately as a determination of eligibility must be made. Your child will be responsible for any debts incurred before the application is approved.
