 Meal Account Deposits   |   2023-24 School Meal Prices

 All students enrolled and attending GAPS schools may choose a complete, healthy breakfast and lunch meal daily for free. No application is necessary. All students qualify for this benefit under the Community Eligibility Provision for the entire school year. To receive a breakfast and lunch for free, students must choose ½ cup of fruit or vegetable at each meal plus two other food items at breakfast and 2 other meal components at lunch to meet the nutritional requirements to make meals reimbursable by USDA.

Please note: Individual items such as an additional entrée or “super breakfast or lunch,” milk by itself or second meals are not free. Funds are required at the time of purchase. To make payments, click the “Meal Account Deposits” button above (4.9% fee) or by cash or check at your school office with no service fee.

Deposits into your student’s account will be immediate. Any leftover balance at the end of the school year will stay in the student’s account for the following school year or can be transferred to a sibling’s account at the request of the parent or guardian. A “My MealTime” app is available through the App Store for smartphone users. Families with multiple students enrolled in GAPS can request a family account by contacting their school or Nutrition Services, (541)967-4622. Family accounts will allow you to make one deposit for all your students so the funds can be shared as needed between them.

Oregon Smart Snacks

Oregon SMART SNACK Standards 

Did you know that any food or beverage item sold during the school day outside of the School Breakfast Program and National School Lunch Program must comply with Smart Snack Standards? This is a federal requirement under USDA. By making healthy snacks the easy choice, more kids may develop healthy eating habits, which can lead to better health and increased academic performance.

Which items must meet the Smart Snack Standards?

  • Examples include: items sold in vending machines, student stores, a la carte items in the cafeteria and fundraisers if the food or beverage is intended for consumption at school.

Use the calculators below to confirm if the non-program food or drinks meet the standards:

(This calculator must be completed before SMART Snacks may be sold in your school. Contact the school principal or Nutrition Services to get started.)
