Franklin Public Schools Food Service Department participates in the National School Lunch Program.
We receive some federal funds to supplement our self-funded department.
Our lunches are nutritious and well balanced staying within the federal guidelines of the meal program.
Each school has a production kitchen where the food is prepared daily for that school.
Check or cash payments can be sent to your child's school or with your student.
Online Payments for lunch fees is available from MySchoolBucks.
*NOTE: The maximum amount of money that can be added to your child's lunch account is up to $120 per transaction. If you'd like to add more than $120, you can do so by doing multiple transactions. During the month of August, there is no transaction fee.
Payments placed before 10:45am are available for use that day's lunch. Track Money Balance & View Purchase History for free. Apps are available for smartphones.
Franklin Public Schools participates in the Free and Reduced Lunch program. Please see below for more information.
If your financial situation changes at anytime throughout a school year you can submit a Free & Reduced Price School Meals Family Application. When students become free or reduced the district office automatically changes the student status in our lunch computer. This way it prevents any cashier from overtly identifying students on this program.
The high school doesn't send out low balance notices but the cashiers will start telling your student their money is running low when it starts to reach around $5.00. It is up to them to dismiss the information if it doesn't apply to them because of their status, again the cashiers do not know who are free or reduced.
