Meal Planner User FAQ
FD MealPlanner allows parents to customize and pre-order all lunch meals
that we offer through its iOS and Android mobile app or online at
www.fdmealplanner.com. Orders placed through the FD MealPlanner app or
website are prepared and packaged ahead of the lunch period. In order to
ensure the availability of your child(ren)’s lunch, parents must select
and submit their pre-orders by 5:00 p.m. the night before. This will
allow the food service department to prepare meals efficiently and
safely for both in-person learning and virtual learning, “grab and go.”
“myLUNCHMONEY” Program is now “mySCHOOLBUCKS”
mySchoolBucks is an option for parents to conveniently pre-pay their child’s school lunch account online using a credit or debit card.
In addition to pre-paying, mySchoolBucks also gives parents the ability to set up a free account to monitor student meal purchases, receive e-mail notifications for low account balances, set spending limits, choose recurring payment options, and place limitations on food items.
Both the district and students benefit by using mySchoolBucks. Fewer cash payments handled at the registers speed up the lunch lines which allows for more time to sit and enjoy lunch, and prepaid student accounts eliminate the problem of lost lunch money.
