Livingston Independent School District is continuing its policy to operate the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2021-2022 school year. Schools qualifying to operate CEP serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.

LISD has three ways for you to place money on your child’s cafeteria account:


1. Lunch Money Now- this is our online system where parents can log onto the internet and place money on their child’s account. Parents can also view the meals and other food items their child has been eating.

2. Students may place money on their accounts during the morning time before school starts for JH and High School. Parents may send money to their child’s teacher for Elementary and Intermediate School. The teacher will send the money to the cafeteria each morning for it to be placed on the child’s account.

3. “NO CHANGE” exchange line will be utilized during lunch serving times. 

We look forward to serving your child this school year. Please call our department at any time if you have questions about your child’s cafeteria account.
