MS and US Meal Plans

The Dining Service at Friends’ Central School provides students with high quality, nutritious, and flexible options. We are now partnering with Flik, who will continue to expand our commitment to local sourcing (including dairy) and organic produce this school year. Food is available à la carte or through a prepaid meal plan. Meal plans are purchased within the first two weeks of school for the entire school year, from September-June, and they take into account sickness and off-campus events. Payments may be added to the monthly payments on the FACTS Tuition Management System. Please contact the Business Office for details. Students who are leaving campus on a class field trip may stop by the Dining Hall the day before their trip and arrange for a packed lunch to be taken with them. All students will receive a student ID card allowing them to purchase food that can be replenished with cash, check, or via a credit card online or in the Dining Hall. This year, we have started accepting credit cards at the register. Please note, as of July 2019, we are no longer using MyPaymentsPlus. Any balance you have on MyPaymentsPlus will be transferred to the new online payment system, My Quickcharge, available online or with a mobile app. You can begin using the My Quickcharge system on Monday, August 19, 2019. Existing balances and deposits made prior to August 19, 2019 will be transferred to My Quickcharge. Click here for more information.

LS Meal Plans

The Dining Service at Friends' Central School has worked hard to design a meal program guaranteed to meet your child’s needs. We now offer two menus – one for students in Nursery through grade 1 and a second menu for students in grades 2 through 5. The goal is to provide kid-friendly meals that match the palate, fine motor skills, and portion size of our youngest to oldest students. We believe it is important for everyone, from our youngest students to our oldest, to be able to find their favorite foods. It is also important to provide the healthiest, freshest foods possible and to encourage good habits. Our menus are designed to accommodate both the finicky and the sophisticated young palates, while providing high quality, nutritional choices.
