Prepay for Meals
RISD participates in paypams.com, an online website that handles prepayments of school meals. Parents may log on to the site directly or through the district website to deposit money into their child's account, thereby eliminating daily lunch money being handled by the child, and speeding up lunch lines. MasterCard and Discover cards are accepted on the site. Parents may also pre-pay directly to the cafeteria by cash, check or money order.
Please contact RISD Child Nutrition at 469-593-0108 for information on free and reduced-charge lunch programs.
