East Grand Rapids Public Schools provides nutritional services through a Joint Operating Agreement with the Grand Rapids Public Schools. Grand Rapids Public Schools provides all services for the program with the exception of the local preparation and serving of food to our students, which is handled by EGRPS employees. The district values this partnership, which we feel provides a nutritional program to our students and provides cost efficiencies for the district.
Online access to your student’s school meal account is available through MyPaymentsPlus (www.mypaymentsplus.com). MyPaymentsPlus provides the ability to check account balances, monitor purchases, and receive e-mail notifications when an account reaches a low balance. Online deposits of $50 or greater are not charged a fee; online deposits of less than $50 are charged a small handling fee.
If you prefer to write a check to deposit funds into your student’s account, please make your check payable to Grand Rapids Public Schools Nutrition Department. Checks may be dropped off in the main office of your student’s school. Please include your student’s name, ID number, and the amount you wish to deposit.
Student Meal Prices
Starting February 1, 2016, lunch prices will be $3.75 at the middle school and high school, and $3.50 at the elementary buildings. Breakfast is offered at the middle school for $2.00 and milk is $0.50 districtwide.
Free and Reduced Meals
A new Application for Free and Reduced Meals is required each year and may be accessed here. The previous year’s status is carried over for the first month of school only. After that, students are considered full pay until an application has been processed and the student has qualified for free and reduced meals.
