Meal Prices and Payment

Did You Receive a Message about a Negative Lunch Account Balance?

Students with a negative lunch account balance may be receiving salad bar only.  To ensure your child receives a hot meal each day, you may make payments as follows:

  • Online using a debit or credit card at EZschoolpay.com
  • Cash or check payments must be made at your child’s school office or at the NVUSD Food Service Office located at 2425 Jefferson St. Rm 106. 

If you have any questions please call (707) 253-3541.  Thank you.

Paying for School Meals


Every student automatically has a meal account and may purchase meals each day. You can set up an online payment account at EZSchoolPay.com (see sidebar at right) by first obtaining your child’s student ID# from your child’s school site or the Food Service Office. With an online account you can make payments to your child’s account, monitor their balance and set up alerts to let you know when their account balance is getting low.



You may also pay by check or cash at your school cafeteria or the Food Service office.  Please make checks payable to school name - FS (for example,  AltaHeights - FS).



If you as the parent/guardian do not want your child to have access to the meal account you must call the Food Service Office at 253-3541 and request a freeze be put on the account. A student may always purchase a meal with cash even if the account has been frozen.

Negative Balance Policies

In an effort to clear all negative balances within student meal accounts, NVUSD and the Food Service office have put in place the following policies:

  • Every student attending NVUSD is given an account. If you, as the parent/guardian, do not want your child to have access to this account, you must call the Food Service office at 253-3541 and request a freeze be put on the account. By requesting a freeze, your child may not charge any item to their meal account but can always purchase a meal with cash. This freeze will remain in effect until a call is received by parent/guardian requesting the freeze be lifted.

  • Each student who has a negative balance and has not set up a payment arrangement with the Food Service office will receive a yellow negative balance notice from the Food Service employee at your child's school, a letter from the Food Service office, and an automated phone call reminding them that their child has a negative balance that needs to be paid. Students who carry a negative balance of $13.00 or more will be given an alternate meal which consists of a dinner roll, cheese, fruit/veggie and milk.

  • If a student has a negative balance of $25.00 or more, the meal account will automatically be frozen to prevent any further accumulation of debt. The student meal account will remain frozen until the balance is paid in full.  If necessary, you may set up payment arrangements by contacting the Food Service office at 253-3541.

  • If a parent calls the Food Service office with a negative balance dispute the account will automatically be frozen until further evaluation of the account is completed or account is paid in full.

  • Parents are strongly encouraged to monitor their students' account activity through the online payment system, EZSchoolPay.com. You will need your child's student ID # which you can obtain from your child's school site or the Food Service office at 253-3541.
