Meal Charge Policy
The goal of St. Mary’s Colgan Catholic Schools lunch program is to provide student access to nutritious low-cost meals each school day.
However, unpaid charges place a large financial burden on our school. The purpose of this policy is to insure compliance with federal requirements for the USDA Child Nutrition Program, and to provide oversight and accountability for the collection of outstanding student meal balances.
The intent of this policy is to establish procedures to address unpaid meal charges throughout St. Mary’s Colgan Catholic Schools. The provisions of this policy pertain to regular priced school lunch meals only. St. Mary’s Colgan Catholic Schools provides this policy as a courtesy to those students in the event that they forget or lose their lunch money.
Free Meal Benefit: Free eligible students will be allowed to receive a lunch at no cost each day. The charge meals offered to students will be reimbursable meals that are available to all students. A la carte purchases must be paid/prepaid.
Reduced Meal Benefit: Reduced eligible students will be allowed to receive a lunch for $.40 each day. A student will be allowed to charge a maximum of 25 meals to their account after the balance reaches zero. The charge meals offered to students will be reimbursable meals that are available to all students.
Full Pay Students: Students will pay for meals at the school’s published paid meal rate each day. If a student is without meal money on a consistent basis, the administration will investigate the situation more closely and take further action as needed. If financial hardship exists, parents/guardians are encouraged to apply for free or reduced price lunches for their child if applicable. A student will be allowed to charge a maximum of four meals to their account after the balance reaches zero. The charge meals offered to students will be reimbursable meals that are available to all students.
Charging of items outside of the reimbursable meals (a la carte items, adult meals, etc.) is expressly prohibited.
Parents/guardians are responsible for meal payment to the food service program. Discreet notices of low or deficit balances will be sent to parents/guardians at regular intervals during the school year.
Students/parents/guardians should pay for meals in advance via ww.ollsmc.com/lunch‑program or with a check payable to St. Mary’s Hot Lunch Program. Funds should be maintained in accounts to minimize the possibility that a child may be without meal money on any given day. Any remaining funds for a particular student may/will be carried over to the next school year.
A written or emailed request for a refund of any money remaining in a withdrawn or graduating student’s account must be submitted. Students who are graduating at the end of the year will be given the option to transfer the remaining funds to a sibling’s account with a written request.
Unclaimed funds must be requested within one school year. Unclaimed funds will then become the property of the St. Mary’s Hot Lunch Food Service Program.
Collection of owed balances will follow the policies and procedures set by the school.
