Meal Payments & Limited Charge Policy

Online Payments


The easiest, and most convenient, way to pay for student meals is online. Funds may be electronically deposited to your student(s) meal account with School Pay (, using any Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card. Secure online payments allow parents to manage student meal accounts at their convenience, with the ability to make/track deposits, purchases, and balance history. Please allow up to 24 hours for your payment to post to your students meal account.

SchoolPay representatives are available to assist you Monday – Friday, from 5am PT – 5pm PT, at (888)88-MYPAY.



Other Payment Options


While we encourage parents to pre-pay for student meals online, cash and checks are accepted at the point of service (cashier) at all school sites. Please make checks payable to Lake Elsinore Unified School District – Food Services, and reference the student identification number your deposit is intended for.


Limited Charge Policy


LEUSD has made every effort to make depositing funds to student meal accounts as convenient as possible. The USDA does not permit school districts to use federal nutrition reimbursement funds to offset negative student account balances. However, we understand extenuating circumstances do occur. In the event of a student lacking funds in their meal account, LEUSD has chosen to extend the following limited charge policy:

Elementary Schools, K-8 Schools

• Students will be allowed to charge an amount up to (2) student lunches ($5.50).

Secondary Schools

• No meal charges permitted
