MCS Lunch Program
Moscow Charter School serves USDA approved school lunches. Lunch is prepared at an offsite kitchen and transported to MCS; orders are placed each morning by 8:45 am. Parents are responsible to provide a lunch for their child in the event that the child forgets to order or arrives at school after orders have been placed without making prior arrangements. Parents are welcome to join their student for lunch!

Free and Reduced Lunch Program
Moscow Charter School is a provider for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Families are required to apply each year, even if they qualified last year, unless the family is notified that they are directly certified. Applications are accepted year round and can be submitted for evaluation at any time through out the year. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Laura Miller: [email protected]
Please note: Milk can be purchased a la carte. If your student qualifies for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program and only purchases a milk, you will be charged for the milk. We do not have a Free and Reduced Milk Program.
Lunch payments must be made in advance of purchase and a positive balance must be maintained in the student’s account. Ultimately it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to maintain a positive balance. The business manager or food service director will check your balance weekly and notify you if your credit balance has dropped below $0. Once you have been notified, payment on your balance as well as additional money for future lunch purchases needs to be submitted to the office within 3 business days. Once per month a statement will be sent to any family that has an unpaid balance. Any unpaid invoices greater than 30 days old will be assessed a 5% finance charge. Seriously delinquent accounts may be turned over to a collection agency.
The recommended initial payment at the beginning of the year is $50.00. Ongoing payments should be sufficient to cover one month of lunches or milks. At the end of the year, any remaining balance will be carried over to the next year or you may request to have the balance refunded to you.
While we encourage you to pay via cash, check or bill pay from your bank, we are also accepting credit card payments via Pay Pal. There is a link on our website if you would like to use this feature, we are unable to swipe your card in the office. All money can be dropped at the front office. If you send cash with your student, please put it in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on it. The parent/guardian will be charged the current bank fee and a $5 administration fee for all returned checks.
Please note: For credit card payments via PayPal, you will be responsible for any fees MCS incurs through PayPal that are associated with the transaction. For example: A payment of $100.00 minus 1.99% (PayPal fee) + .49 (PayPal transaction fee), will result in the actual deposit to your account equaling $97.52.
No Moscow Charter School student will ever be denied a school lunch or milk on the basis of having a delinquent account or singled out as having an unpaid lunch balance.
Parents/Guardians are responsible for keeping lunch account balances positive and for promptly paying any lunch invoices. Any unpaid invoices greater than 30 days old will be assessed a 5% finance charge by the school. Seriously delinquent accounts may be turned over to a collection agency. Families experiencing financial difficulty are encouraged to contact the Business Manager to set up a payment plan, and to apply for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Delinquent amounts are not considered to be discharged if the student leaves Moscow Charter School.
