Paying/Prepaying for School Meals


Student balances follow the student from school-to-school within the district and remain on the student account from one year to the next.

You are welcome, and encouraged, to prepay your child's meals.  To help assure that each child eats lunch, we may allow a child to "charge" up to two meals (the parent/guardian is responsible to pay for any meals served to their student), but students who have a negative balance in their meal account will not be permitted to charge meals until their account is paid and current. (An emergency lunch of a sandwich and milk is available to students who do not have money in their account.)


  • To prepay into your child's account, you may give payments (cash, money order or check) directly to a member of the kitchen staff, or you may set up an online payment account to manage deposits using a debit or credit card (information below).
  • Make checks/money orders payable to the Auburn School District.
  • Please include the student's name, ID number, grade, and homeroom teacher's name on the check or money order (or on the envelope if it contains a cash deposit).

Upon request, the balance of your student's account can be refunded.  Refunds take approximately three weeks to process and the refund check is mailed to the parent/guardian.  To request a refund, call the Child Nutrition Services office at 253-931-4972.



Internet/Online Payment Option


If you wish to set up an account* so you can pre-pay meals for your student online, you can do so by using the "HERE" link below. Later you can use this link to conveniently manage your student's account.  The MealTime Online site is not set up to accept payments for any other school and/or district fees.

Payment information is synchronized with computers in school kitchens twice a day (at approximately 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.).  In order to have money post to your student's account, be sure your deposit is complete at least an hour prior to the time computers synchronize.  Once your account is established, in addition to pre-paying meals, you can make payments on balances for your students' school meal account, and view account activity (including purchase, payment, and balance information).  All this can be done from a secure internet connection.
