*Portland Christian Healthy Lunch Program*
It is our desire to serve our students by providing tasty, healthy and affordable lunches! The PCS Healthy Lunch program allows for in house preparation, fresh foods and includes a reduced price lunch option to qualifying families. We understand the concerns that come with eating outside of the home. With that being said, please rest assured that we are taking any and every precaution possible to ensure that the students will be receiving a healthy and safe lunch.
The primary focus of our staff is the preparation and service of the meal. To help us make the most of our time, we have instituted a “no charge” policy. School lunch accounts will be “debit” accounts, not charge accounts. Families will deposit funds in their accounts for food purchases of any kind. Prepayment allows students to go through the line quicker giving them more time to eat. Payment can be accomplished in one of two ways:
Prepay with a check or cash: Please put payments in an envelope marked with the student’s name, grade, and amount paid. To insure your account gets credited, please make certain you label all envelopes containing a payment, especially if paying with cash. If paying with a check, please put your students name in the memo section.
This is only available on a limited basis and is designed to cover the rare situation of a student forgetting a lunch or a parent neglecting to prepay. Charges will be allowed for one day only and must be paid in full the following school day. If your account becomes delinquent, you may be charged a late fee. Students may only charge a lunch, not extras such as additional entrees, ice
cream or chips.
