Food Service Account Information
Each family has a food service account. Deposits are made to that account, and the cost of all family members’ meal purchases is subtracted from it.
Your Campus Parent Portal username will give you access to view payments and purchases, as well as enter payments online. If you need a username and password, please contact your student's school.
Cash is not accepted in the lunch line. Payments may be made by:
1) Credit card using Campus Parent Portal
2) Check or cash at your child’s school.
Discover, Visa or MasterCard (debit, credit or check card) payments are processed by Infinite Campus, and funds are reflected immediately in the student's food service account.
- Go to the Campus Parent Portal or Mobile App and follow the guides below to deposit money into your child(ren)'s food service account.
If an email address is entered, a confirmation email will be sent when payments are added to the food service account.
Cash or Check Payments
Payments made with cash and check can be processed at your child’s school.
Checks should be made payable to McLean County Unit 5 Food Service. Please do not combine any other payments with your food service deposit. The amount you send will be deposited into your food service account. Any checks returned by the bank will be subtracted from your account and collected at the District office.
Please contact the school office regarding the procedure at your child's elementary school.
Junior and Senior High Schools
Deposit envelopes are available in the cafeteria, and a drop box is located in the serving room door. Payments placed in the drop box by 9:45 a.m. will be deposited in your account before lunch the same day. Please include the following on the deposit envelope:

• Head of household’s full name
