Meal & Ala Carte Payments
Use the links on the right for payment information. Payments for Champ's Cafe breakfast and lunch meals and ala carte items can be made by cash, check, or online with a credit/debit card. We suggest customers deposit extra money in their account so they will have a safety net and their students can depend on a healthy meal at school every day! Please feel free to communicate with your child's Champ's Cafe manager by phone or email if you have questions or concerns.
There are increased expectations for our student customers' responsibilities as they mature and progress through middle and high school. Teach your child to ask the cashier what their balance is and then communicate with you to help them learn and practice money management skills.
