For Parents: School Lunch Menus and Cafeteria Information

As of January 1, 2017 school districts are required to provide nutritional information on all menu items. The Eastchester School District lunch program is managed by Chartwells. The program employed by Chartwells to meet these regulations is Nutrislice.

Computerized Lunch Program and Point of Sale

The Eastchester Union Free School District utilizesMyPaymentsPlus, a computerized school lunch program in all of our school cafeterias.

For students, the system allows us to provide more efficient service in the cafeteria. For parents, this system provides a convenient, secure and accurate way to provide your child with a pre-paid lunch account. Parents can deposit money in their child's account, in any amount, at any time, eliminating the need to give your child lunch money on a daily basis. This program also has a free mobile app that parents can download to make deposits using a iPhone, iPad or Android phone.
