EZ Lunch Account FAQ’s

How EZ is this new system?

Each student has a photo ID card with their student ID number in barcode format. This is scanned in the kitchen when they make purchases and goes directly into their EZ lunch account.  Once parents log in and set up a password, they’ll see their student’s name(s) connected to their name.  Then they’ll be able to see what students are purchasing for lunch (and breakfast). Student lunch charges will no longer be included in tuition billing. Parents now manage their own student account(s).

What if the balance falls below zero … may they still purchase lunch?

YES! We request that you fund your EZ Lunch student account(s) before purchases are made. However, no student will be denied a food purchase if their balance is negative. You will receive automatic “low balance” and “negative balance” emails to keep you informed.  

How do I fund my student account?

One of three ways: Credit Card or ACH or Check.

How to fund by Credit Card or ACH:

  1. Log in to your account at www.EZSchoolApps.com select “Parent Login” it will bring you to the payment page.
  2. The first time you’ll set up either a credit card or ACH account. Select the Credit Card tab for either payment type.  Select either “Add Credit Card” or “Add ACH Account”   If selecting ACH, you may need to attempt multiple times to connect your bank; however some banks do not “participate” with EZ and are unable to connect. EZ accepts VISA, MASTERCARD and DISCOVER.  
  3. Once your Credit Card or ACH is set up: Add money into your student’s account by selecting the Meal Payments Tab. Click on the blue “Add Money” link. 

TIP: If you have multiple students: add a lump sum into one student account and then transfer money into the other student’s accounts using the “Transfer Between Students” button.

By Check: You may also pay by check, payable to PA, if you choose to prepay lunch for an entire semester. No fee charged. You may send a lump sum for all your students and clearly indicate how much $ goes into each student’s lunch account. We request you still set up your EZ Lunch account password so that you can track your student purchases and see their account balance.

Send lunch checks (payable to PA) to Providence, attention Beth Trombley, EZ Lunch, Business Office.

Fees:

EZ Lunch charges a transaction fee based on the amount paid.

  • For Credit Card payments:
    • $10 – $60 = $2.50 (fixed)
    • $70 and higher = 3.75%
  • For ACH payments:
    • $10 – $60 = $1.50 (fixed)
    • $70 and higher = 2.50%

How much might my student spend at the PA Cafe?  In other words, a semester’s worth of lunch is how much?

A semester has 84 days so if your student eats a main entree lunch every day ($5.80) then they will spend approximately $500. If they purchase breakfast foods and other lunch items then factor in more. See prices on this page for more information.

 What happens to my leftover balance at the end of the school year?

The money will stay in student accounts and carryover to the next school year, be transferred to a siblings’ account or be refunded to you upon request at any time or if your student is no longer here.

How can I change my email address? We have to make the email address changes from our end. Please send an email to

About PA Chef Marshall Morris

“Chef Morris’s penchant for broadening [Providence] students’ palates harkens back to his childhood kitchen in Jamaica, where he learned simple stove and pan cooking from his mother. As one of 10 children, Morris understood early what it takes to cook for a crowd. Later, his interest in food took root when he studied agriculture in Jamaica.

After meeting his wife, Susan, Morris moved to Minnesota in 1984. He went from busboy to food server, eventually becoming the restaurant manager at the former Radisson University West Bank, Minneapolis. He went on to receive an associate’s degree in hotel and restaurant management at Normandale Community College, and became Providence’s head chef with Signature Dining, now Taher Inc., 14 years ago.

With a team of 15 employees, Morris feeds most of the school’s more than 800 students, as well as around 70 staff members. “That’s the tricky part,” Morris says of tending to the tastes of a wide audience. While the main menu is the same for all grade levels, the middle and high schoolers are offered a grill line and sandwich bar.”
