Cashless School Meals
The benefits of going contactless in
your school canteen:
Secure & Simple
online payment top ups from parents for their child’s school dinner
Significantly reduce the administration
burden for your staff
no more recording, counting, bagging and lodging cash
Shorten the dinner queues
With easier adherence to social distancing, faster transaction processing times and no need to wait for change
Discreetly handle school meal entitlements
and remove the stigma surrounding this issue
Increased meal uptake
no more spending dinner money off-site on unhealthy snacks
It’s easy! Debitrak will supply each pupil with a smartcard to be used instead of cash to purchase their daily school dinner. Parents register online and top up their child’s account to enable them to start using their smartcard. Every time the card is presented at the till, the balance is displayed and this lets pupils know how much money they have available.
Parents can top up from any PC, tablet or mobile device that has an internet connection and simply transfer funds from their debit or credit card.
In today’s fast paced click-swipe-tap-scroll digital world most parents are more than familiar with online transactions and most agree that the days of finding cash & coins for school dinners are numbered.
By going cashless in your school canteen you will be assuring parents that their child
will get a healthy and nutritious meal every day.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT…
The School Food Company is fast becoming Ireland’s leading provider of quality school meals. The company was started in 2011 by brothers Ken and Mark Boland. This hard-working team is fully committed to providing food that is tasty and healthy. Their mission is to get junk food out of Irish schools and revolutionize the school food environment. Their ethos is simple - to help children and young people to make healthier food choices by making healthy food available in schools. They make it easy for kids to have access to healthy and delicious food at school – with zero cost or hassle to the school.
The School Food Company is in the process of rolling out Debitrak into all their school sites in Ireland.
‘Cashless is a must have and Debitrak is a great fit.’
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Talk to us about how we can help fund the cost of our cashless system. Each installation is dependent upon variable factors such as the number of pupils and staff and the range of catering services offered. As a rule of thumb, an investment of around € 5 / £ 5 per student goes a long way to covering the cost of the system and, in many cases, that initial cost can charged as a ‘once only’ payment to join the scheme.
