Low Meal Balance Settings
This option will allow you to monitor your child's lunch balance. If you activate this option, you will be notified via email should the balance fall below the minimum balance.
If your student's lunch balance falls below $9.50, this option allows e-Funds to automatically pull $30 from your debit or credit card account. Note: There is a $1.50 service fee per transaction.
To set it up:
- Log in to your e-Funds account.
- Select Guaranteed Lunch from the Payment Settings dropdown.
- Read the Terms and Conditions and click Enroll Now.
- Once enrolled, you will be prompted to enter a New AutoPay Credit Card. (This gives you the ability to have the same or a different funding source for this option.)
Note: If you are manually adding funds from your checking account, adding this credit card information does not override that payment option. The AutoPay credit card will only be charged if/when the account falls below $9.50.
