School menus on all levels are created to not only taste great, but offer healthy and nutritious options to all students. Following nutritional regulations and guidelines set by both the USDA and the SC State Department of Education, each menu item is nutritionally analyzed to ensure that it meets all criteria.
Richland Two Food Services strives to offer the healthiest options, while also providing meals that students can enjoy. Elementary School students dine at the Kid's Way Cafe. While Middle School and High School students enjoy more options at the DYK Cafe and Crossroads Cafe, respectively. For more information about the meals, please visit the SodexoMyWay website.
Payment & Collection
Money may be added to a student’s account at any time. Parents may pay in advance. Payments may be made through the Parent Portal. Additionally, payment may be made by check in the cafeteria. Checks should include checking account owner's full name, street address and phone number. When you provide a check, you authorize us to either use the information to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction. A $30 fee will be processed as an electronic fund transfer from your account for returned checks. The use of cash is strongly discouraged.
If a student has not pre-paid for a meal, the following limited charge procedure may be utilized:
Elementary and Middle Schools — Students in elementary and middle schools will be allowed to charge up to $10. When the student’s balance reaches the threshold of $10, the student will be served an alternate meal. The alternate meal will consist of a sandwich, fruit, and milk.
Full paying student accounts will be charged the prevailing full-pay meal price for the alternate meal. Reduced student accounts will be charged the prevailing reduced meal price for the alternate meal.
High school students and adults — High school students and adults will not be allowed to charge, however they may pre-pay for their meals.
Debt Collection Procedure
- The Cafeteria Manager will send written notices home every Friday for collection of that week’s charges. If payment is not received the following Monday, the parent will be contacted by the Manager or Cashier.
- If parents have been contacted and payment has not been received by Wednesday, the Cafeteria Manager will request that the Principal contact the parents.
- The Principal will send a letter to the parent giving them five working days to make arrangements to settle the debt.
- If no response is received by the following Wednesday, the Principal will refer the matter to the District’s Office of Financial Services to begin collection efforts.
