MealpayPlus Provides Convenience and Information to manage School Meal Accounts

Visit to make deposits or monitor your student's meal account.

What is it?

Aldine ISD offers MealpayPlus, a state-of-the-art online service that provides you the convenience and information you need to manage your student's meal account.  This system speeds up serving lines in the cafeteria, eliminates the need to send checks to school or worry about lost or forgotten lunch money, and ensures that your child will receive a nutritious meal.

At no cost, MealpayPlus allows any family to:

*  Create a free, secured account to manage all of your student's accounts
*  Check your student's current account balance
*  Monitor the items your student has been purchasing in the cafeteria
*  Create settings to receive e-mail notifications when the account reaches a low balance

For a small program fee, MealpayPlus allows any family to:

*  Make a prepayment into your student's meal account using a check, credit card, or debit card at or by calling 866-847-5491.  Funds deposited through MealpayPlus are usually available for student use within a matter of minutes.  This feature eliminates the need to send a check to school or worry about lost or forgotten lunch money.
*  Create settings to automatically replenish your student's account when it reaches a low balance.

If you prefer to make payments or check balances via phone, a toll-free number has been created for our district (866-847-5491).
