The two options allows flexibility of payment and gives the parent alternate payment choices.  Automated payments are also available preventing a child’s meal account from being short of funds.  The cost for using a credit or debit card is $2.45 for up to each $100 transaction and there is no charge for using a check.  Questions?  Contact Nutrition Services at 402-557-2259 or
