Each student will have their own personal account in which they can place money for purchases. In addition to an online option, payment to accounts may be made to a student’s individual school with a personal check or cash. Personal checks or cash may also be sent directly to the District Child Nutrition Office for individual or multiple students, with a note designating how the money is to be divided. The District Child Nutrition Office is able to place money in a student’s account for all schools. Please make checks payable to “ISD 197 Child Nutrition” and include the student’s full name and PIN or Student ID Number on the check.
All students may also use the money in their accounts to purchase individual cartons of milk and additional entrees. Middle and High School students may purchase healthy snacks using their meal account.
Positive and negative account balances are carried over to the next school year.
Account balances are available by contacting the Child Nutrition representative at your child’s school or by setting up an online account through FeePay™ (see below).

ONLINE PAYMENTS - FeePay
FeePay™ is a comprehensive, online system that gives parents and guardians one place, with one login, to register and pay fees, submit forms and more. District 197 began using FeePay™ in the fall of 2014 for school meals, transportation, high school athletics and community education and School-Age Childcare (SAC). Learn more
FeePay™ allows parents to make online payments to their child’s meal account. It also enables parents to view their child’s account balance, check payments made through FeePay™, and view purchase history. Confirmation of payments and low balance reminders are automatically emailed to parents. Wallet and Auto-Replenish features allow parents to set a low balance amount that will automatically replenish your child’s account when it reaches a specified balance.
Parents need not make deposits via FeePay™ in order to register an account and enjoy the benefits of receiving low-balance reminders and viewing student purchase history.
FeePay™ accepts MasterCard, VISA, and Discover credit or debit cards; or you may pay by electronic debit from your Checking or Savings account by providing account and routing numbers. Credit card payments CANNOT be processed over the phone by calling the Child Nutrition Office.
It is strongly recommended that all parents set
up an account in FeePay™ and utilize the low balance notification
feature to avoid having their child(ren) run out of money. It is the parent’s responsibility to make
sure their child(ren) has/have adequate funds in their account(s) as negative
balances are not allowed at anytime during the school year.
