School Meals at DACC

During the 2021-2022 school year, each student may receive one free breakfast and one free lunch each day. In addition to meals, a la carte items are available for purchase.

To facilitate cash-free payment of breakfast and lunch, students are encouraged to download and utilize the PaySchools app. Cash payments will be accepted. However, change or refunds will not be provided. If exact change cannot be paid, the additional funds will be applied to the students' PaySchools 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.

Utilizing PaySchools Central

Manage Student Account

Every student is encouraged to 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.

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 the below Household Income Survey to DACC.
