Buying Meals at MPCS

At MPCS, we use a computerized system to track meals served and payments / charges made to student accounts. Students are assigned a unique PIN number that they should memorize. ( Elementary and middle school students will receive a card with their name and PIN number on the first day of school. High school cards will be given out upon request. ) Sharing of PIN numbers is NOT ALLOWED.

To purchase meals, students enter their PIN number at the cashier's station(s). Prepayment for meals is encouraged to reduce instances of lost or stolen lunch money. Students may deposit money into their school meal account and charges for meals will be deducted from the account balance as purchases are made. Parents may request an account statement from the school's cafeteria manager at any time. Please take the time to thoroughly review the Cafeteria payment policy information and go over it with your child.

School Meals at No Charge for All Children

Effective immediately, Manassas Park City Schools will be serving meals at no charge to children 18 and under. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved waivers for local school divisions and other federal meal program sponsors to implement the Summer Food Service Program to provide meals to children in the community free of charge through December 31, 2020. The waivers support access to nutritious meals while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.

The new school year requires a new meal application. Although school meals will be provided free to all children, school funding depends on completed meal applications. A new meal application must be completed if you have not already been notified that your student is approved for free meals. It is important to submit a completed meal application as soon as possible.

  • Only one meal application is needed for each household.
    • Meals are available to all children including those learning in-person or virtually and regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
