GARFIELD, N.J. -- Garfield's public schools have launched an online payment program for student lunches aimed to make the process easier.
The schools have used a computerized point system to pay for lunches, and parents had to send in a coupon with payment. Now parents can make the payments -- or prepay -- online here. Students can still pay with cash as well.
If not paying with cash, students will have a little extra time to eat and the lost-lunch-money problem can be eliminated. The system also will reduce cashier errors, and parents will have access to payment history.
For questions, call the lunch department at 973-340-5000, ext. 2308.
