Meal Bundles Begin September 1st 

August 20, 2020

Starting September 1, School Nutrition will be distributing pre-ordered meal bundles that include 5 breakfasts and lunches for CMS students. Meal bundles will be available for pick up at a designated meal site or delivered to the student’s' bus stop.  
 

How to Order a Meal Bundle?

All parents and guardians may use their existing PayPAMS account or can go to PayPAMS.com to create one. You do not need to provide a credit card to create an account. Meal bundles will be available by pre-order only. School Nutrition is using PayPAMS as a method of gathering orders. When placing an order, you will see the cost as $0.00. This does not mean the meal bundle is free. Once the meal bundle is delivered, CMS staff will use their point of sale system to charge the meal bundle to the student’s account based on their current meal status.

Cost of a Meal Bundle

Meal bundles are free for students who qualify for free or reduced lunch or attend a CEP school. Students who do not qualify for free or reduced lunch can purchase meal bundles for $15 per week.

Meal bundles will be charged to the student’s meal account based on their current meal status. If a student attends a CEP school or qualifies for free or reduced lunch, the bundle will be free. Parents paying for meal bundles are encouraged to add money to their student’s account in PayPAMS to cover the cost of the meal bundle.

When does this start?

CMS will assign each student to a Group. Each group will be designated a day of the week for meal bundle delivery and pick up.
