Food Service Debit Accounts for Students
In the Food Service Department we have updated our computerized system that allows us to
manage our business faster and better. The system is called Café Enterprise.
DEBIT ACCOUNTS FOR STUDENTS!
A great feature of this system is that each student has a “debit account” (not a credit account)
with us. This means that money is deposited into the account, and then the student can purchase
lunch using it. Each student has an account number which is the same as their student ID
number. At lunch time, the student enters their number on the pin pad and the computer accesses
the student’s account. If there is money in the account, the purchase is deducted. If the student
is eligible for a free meal, the computer acts as if the student has meal credits in the account. If
there is no money in the account, and the student is a paying student, the computer will ask for
the price of the meal.
