      Pre-Pay for Meals

      • Visit the CHCCS K12 Payment Center to pre-pay for meals.


        Pre-Pay for Meals

        You may pre-pay for school meals throughout the year using a service known as “K12PaymentCenter”. To sign up, click on the above picture to get started. (If using a mobile device, click that link and then expand the menu next to “Meals and Nutrition” to see “Pre-Pay for Meals.”)

        Note: Families checking their children's existing lunch balances through the payment center may find a $0 balance. This is because the account has not been used since 2020. The account is temporarily inactive at the payment center's end, but not on the district's accounts. Therefore, you cannot see the balance or account history. Once your child makes their first purchase this school year or funds have been added to the account, the account will reactivate the balance and history. If you want to know the balance before then, please contact the School Nutrition Office at 919-967-8211 ext. 28270.
