Lunch Accounts

Faith West uses a payment portal for school lunch accounts.  You can receive notices when your lunch account is low on funds and automatically post funds to your student’s account. If you do not want your child to make purchases at the school cafeteria using an account, you MUST create an account and restrict all purchases for your child. They will always be able to purchase with cash.
