Pre-Payment Options

Your Child's School Meal Account

San Ramon Valley Unified School District's Child Nutrition Department provides parents/guardians a convenient, easy and secure online pre-payment service for depositing money into your child's school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents/guardians the ability to view their child's account balance through the website. By having money in each child's account prior to entering the cafeteria, the lunch line moves along much faster, so your child has more time to eat and be with friends.
