Cashless Catering - A to Z

Service Outline

The "Cashless Catering" system allows parents or guardians to deposit funds on their child's Young Person's National Entitlement Card through an internet payment, or allows the pupil to top up their card using a cash machine in the school.

Although cashless catering is not yet available in primary schools, we work closely with head teachers in developing systems which protect the anonymity of children who choose to have free meals in their school.

When using the internet for deposits to the Cashless Catering system the cut off time is 8.00am. Therefore, provided the transaction takes place before 8.00am, the funds will be available later that morning.   Payments made after 8.00am on a Friday and before 8.00am on a Monday will be credited by 9.00am on Monday.
