Lunch Money Now Program

Smithville ISD Receives USDA Waiver for Students to

 Receive a FREE Breakfast & Lunch

Free breakfasts and lunches will be provided to all Smithville ISD students beginning September 21, 2020 thru December 18, 2020 or until USDA funds run out.

Smithville ISD has received a waiver from the USDA which will allow for all SISD students (learning virtually and on campus), as well as children in the community 18 and under, to receive free breakfasts and lunches.

Students learning via on campus will receive 1 FREE complete meal each day.  Any additional entrees or snacks will be charged to the students’ meal account.  Charging will be only allowed if the student has money in their account.

Students learning virtually have 2 options to receive the FREE meals.

  • Pick up meals behind the Elementary Cafetorium located at 800 Bishop Street on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:30 am-12:30 pm.
  • Delivery from the SISD Child Nutrition Department on Mondays and Wednesdays. To have meals delivered to your front door please complete the form in the link here or call the Child Nutrition Department at 512-237-5646.
This will be in effect from September 21, 2020, until December 18, 2020, or until USDA’s funds run out. Once the USDA waiver has ended, current meal prices from September will resume.
Brown Primary and Elementary lunch: $2.50
Jr High School $2.75
High School lunch: $3.00
**ALL reduced meal prices: lunch: $.40
Breakfast for all students will continue to be provided FREE throughout the school year.  All account balances will remain in the students’ accounts. Negative balances should be paid as soon as possible. To review your child(ren)’s meal account balance go to Lunch Money Now. Contact the Child Nutrition Department for assistance at 512-237-5646.
This waiver is for student meals only. 
Smithville ISD’s Child Nutrition Department is still accepting household free/reduced meal applications. Please send in your applications, or apply at Meals App Now so those who qualify will continue to receive free or reduced meals once the USDA waiver has expired or funds run out.   
If you have questions, please contact the Child Nutrition Director Candy Biehle at or 512-237-5646.
Lunch Money Now Program

The district's cafeterias can provide electronic accounting for student meal balances and daily meal ticket accounting through a service called Lunch Money Now. Lunch Money Now allows parents and guardians to manage their child's lunch money account. Parents can check balances and deposit funds to ensure their children have access to lunches. Parents can also setup email notices to inform them when a student's account dips below a specified amount.

Note: a parent or guardian needs the following information to use Lunch Money Now:

  • student's "S" number
  • last 4 digits of the student's Social Security Number
  • student's date of birth
