Food Service Information
East Jackson Community Schools will be participating in a new option available to schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the School Year 2019-2020. The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students enrolled at our schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at NO CHARGE to your household each day of the 2019-2020 school year.
The purpose of East Jackson Schools Food Service is to prepare and serve nutritious and appealing meals that meet the dietary guidelines to students, staff, and the community in a positive, cheerful manner, while maintaining financial soundness, and contributing to the quality and excellence of a student’s educational experience.The USDA School Meals Nutrition Standards require that a variety of low fat unflavored milk or fat free flavored milk be offered, all grains must be at least 51% whole grain-rich, and students must take at least 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable with breakfast and lunch. Meals also must meet calorie, fat, sodium and sugar guidelines.
In addition to meeting the USDA guidelines for even healthier meals and offerings for your children, starting in school year 2014-15, all foods sold at school during the school day meet nutrition standards. The Smart Snacks in School regulation applies to foods sold a la carte, in the school store, and vending machines.
*Please note- any charges incurred prior to application completion/processing are the responsibility of the parent / guardian.
*A $10.00 charge will be assessed to all checks returned for non-sufficient funds.

Meal Magic Information
East Jackson Community Schools have implemented electronic cash registers called “Meal Magic” in all of our
Cafeterias. This new system allows us to setup debit accounts for each student. Parents/Guardians can then send a check to the school for their student’s lunch needs. Meal Magic will track the amount spent by the student from each day’s meal automatically using the student’s ID number! We will have a record of all of your deposits and how the money is spent.
You have the ability to check your child’s meal history and make deposits to their food service account on the internet using https://www.sendmoneytoschool.com/Dashboard/login.aspx
To begin – go to https://www.sendmoneytoschool.com/Dashboard/login.aspx From there, click the
“sign-up” link and follow the steps to set up your account below.
