JPS Food Service Payment Policy


Breakfast/Lunch Payment Policy


The Johnston Public School District is committed to providing your child with nutritious breakfast and lunch options. It is the policy of the district not to deny a meal to any child and therefore, if a student continues to receive breakfast or lunch, their negative balance will continue to grow. We will continue our efforts to collect these negative balances on the student's account until the negative balance is paid in full. Timely payment is appreciated.


Meal benefit applications must be filled out every school year. If you were receiving free or reduced meal benefits last year but failed to fill out a new application before the October 15th deadline, any balance incurred between that time and the time that a new application was filed is still your responsibility to pay. Please note that if your ability to pay or circumstances have changed, please re-submit a new application to be considered for Free & Reduced Benefits.


We accept payment in the form of cash, check, or through the online pre payment system. Check payments can be mailed to:


Johnston High School

Johnston, Rhode Island 02919
Attn: Nutrition Lunch Program


Please make all checks payable to Johnston Public Schools
