Pay for Food Service via e-Funds

If you have difficulty accessing e-Funds, please try updating your browser to the most recent version.

Go to e-Funds website  

Go to e-Funds mobile


More information/Instructions

To help our families better track meal program balances, all food service accounts are to be paid through e-Funds. Food service deposits can no longer be submitted at the School Office. No more worries about students forgetting to stop by the office with money!

  • CHECKING ACCOUNT - If you link your checking account, FVL will pay the service fee.

  • CREDIT/DEBIT ACCOUNT - If you link to a debit or credit card, a $2.65 service fee will be charged for every $100 of transferred funds.

OPTIONAL:
There is no "Autopay Acknowledgment Form" to complete to enroll in the Guaranteed Lunch option (this option will automatically charge your credit card $31.50 if your student's lunch account falls below $9.50).

To enroll in the Guaranteed Lunch option, please log-in to your eFunds account and select "AutoPay" from the "Special Services" section.  Once, there, you will click on the "Activate" button to agree to all Terms and Conditions of the Guaranteed Lunch option.  Once activated, you will be prompted to enter in a New Auto Pay Credit Card so that if your student's lunch account ever falls below $9.50, your credit card will be charged $31.50 ($30 to your student's lunch account and $1.50 processing fee).  

If you signed up for your checking account to be charged when funding your student's account, adding this credit card information DOES NOT override that payment option; the credit card will only be charged if/when your student's account drops below $9.50.
