Meals during August 17 – 31
During the first two weeks of school, August 17 – 31, students will be provided one free breakfast and lunch at 40 grab-and-go meal sites across the district each weekday. The 40 grab-and-go meal sites will be open for pick-up from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Attached is a list of school sites that will be providing daily meal pick up for the first 11 days of school. Meals distributed during August 17-August 31 do not have to be pre-ordered. Parents can drive through and pick up meals for their student daily.
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 (same sites as first two weeks) or delivered to the student’s' bus stop. Deadline to order for the first week of bus stop DELIVERY is this Tuesday, August 18th at midnight. The deadline for ordering a meal bundle for PICK-UP for the week of September 1 is August 26.
How to Order a Meal Bundle?
Parents may use their existing PayPAMS account or can go to PayPAMS.com to create one. They 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, parents 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. Students who do not qualify for free or reduced lunch can purchase meal bundles for $15 per week. 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.
