Summer Food Service Programs - 2021

All children ages 1 through 18 are eligible to receive free meals during the summer months at participating program sites. Individuals ages 19 through 21 who have been identified as having mental or physical disabilities and are following Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) through their current enrollment in educational programs also are eligible for free summer meals.

DACC does not offer a summer food program. Delaware County summer food programs are offered at: Delaware City School and Worthington City Schools.  For more information or to find a location of a summer food program near you call 1-866-3-HUNGRY (486479) or visit 
ODE's web site and look at the clickable map for all schools and participating locations.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions on handling money at food service operations, paying for lunches daily at the cafeteria cashier will not be permitted.

Every student must have funds on their lunch account through PaySchools Central. Download a step sheet here to add money to an account. If you already have a Payschools account from your home school you will need to create a new account for DACC using a different email address than the home school account.

If you wish to write a check for student meals, checks should be made payable to Delaware Area Career Center noting your student’s name and lab in the memo section. Checks will be submitted to the student’s lab teacher who will get it to the cafeteria manager for processing.

Any questions about the cafeteria can be directed to Kendall Friend at or by phone at 740-203-2226.

You may place orders for the days you are on campus as well as the days you are off campus (these will be referred to as “Take Home” meals and “To Go” meals). To minimize the contact with others, all meals will be delivered to the lab classrooms based on the orders received for that day (students will not have meals in the commons area this year).

We also will not be accepting cash payments and require that students order meals using their 6-digit code from their PaySchools account.

Manage Student Account

Once you create your account, you can:

  • Deposit money at your convenience into your child’s Cafeteria account

  • Set email reminders to notify you when you child’s account gets low

  • Set up recurring payments for your child’s Cafeteria account

  • Check your child’s Cafeteria account balance

  • View an activity report so you can see what your child has eaten in the previous 30 days

  • View and pay your child’s student fees online

  • Schedule fee payments for future payment

If you have questions about the PaySchools system or you have forgotten your password, please contact PaySchools Central directly by email or phone at 877-393-6628.

Free and Reduced Lunch

Delaware Area Career Center (DACC) will participate in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) during the 2021-2022 school year. Under this option, all children in the school receive breakfast and lunch at no charge and without any application. However, to determine eligibility for additional state and federal program benefits for which your child may qualify, please complete, sign, and return this application to DACC.
