Manage My Account

Using E-Funds, you can review your student’s dining account online and make a secure online payment. Your payment can be made through e-check, credit card or debit card. Direct debit payments incur a $1.25 fee per transaction. Credit card payments incur a $2.65 fee per $100 increment of each transaction.

Make a Cash or Check Payment

If you prefer to pay with cash or check, you may deliver or mail your payment to your school’s food services department or to the Holy Family Food and Nutrition Services Department. If you send cash or a check with your child please place it in a sealed envelope and write your child(ren)'s complete name, grade, and student ID or cafeteria name on the envelope. Payments are deposited into your child’s account the same day they are received at the cafeteria.

Online Dining Payments

E-Funds allows families to review student meal accounts online. Families are able to make secure online payments toward their dining accounts. You can review your family’s dining account balance, transactions and pay online.

How It Works

Login to your E-Funds account or click on "Fund Lunch" and you will be prompted to log in. Now select "Fund Lunch." Here you will see your child(ren)'s names listed along with their meal account balance. Select a child's name to add funds to his or her account, and click "Add to Cart." When you have added funds to all accounts you wish to, click "Begin Checkout" to proceed with your payment.

Look below for a step-by-step visual of how to create an account, add a student, and submit an online payment.

Transaction Fee

Direct debit payments incur a $1.25 fee per transaction. Credit card payments incur a $2.65 fee per $100 increment of each transaction. Making fewer, larger payments by direct debit will decrease the amount you pay in transaction fees. If you prefer to avoid the extra fee entirely, you can still send cash or check to your school's food services department or to Holy Family Food Services.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Marie Miller, food services director, at (563) 582-5456, Ext. 244, or mariemiller@holyfamilydbq.org.
