• Food Service Update


    All Breakfast and Lunch meals will be offered at no charge for the remainder of 2020-2021 school year.  This is due to approved federal waivers. 

    A la carte items would still require funds.   These items will currenlty only be offered at the secondary level.




    We are requesting that if possible parents/ gaurdians utilize our free online payment system to add funds to their students account.  www.schoolcafe.com

    If cash or checks are sent to school, we are requesting the funds be in sealed envelopes with the information on the outside:  Students full name and lunch number. If the lunch number is not known,  please add a full birthdate.

    Funds will be recieved and entered before or after meal service. This process  is to ensure money is being handled minimally by one staff member away from meals being offered. 


    Funds may also be sent to Food Service office at:

    721 South Sixth Street.

    Chambersburg, PA  17201

    Please make sure to add student data and a phone number to contact.
