Triangle Lunch Policy

Triangle School uses an electronic lunch payment system.  Students wishing to purchase a school lunch will have a choice of using the debit Point of Service (POS) system to pay for their lunch or to pay with cash.

Your child will be provided with an ID card which will be scanned in the cafeteria. All cards will be kept in school.  Additionally, please note the following:

  • The use of this system is voluntary, students may still pay for lunch with cash.

  • Deposits into the POS account (cash or checks) should be placed in an envelope and sent to the main office.  Please clearly mark the envelope with your child's name, teacher's name, and POS Program, so that it is clear that this money is for your child's POS lunch account.

  • Deposits by check must have POS Program written in the note section of the check. Please make checks payable to the Hillsborough Township Board of Education.

  • Deposits can be made electronically to your child's lunch account via the website, although there is a service charge applied.

  • Only school lunches, beverages and food al la carte items can be debited from the account.  Snacks (ice cream, cookies, chips, etc.) cannot be debited from the account.

  • We very strongly suggest that at least $5.00 be placed in every child's account for emergencies.  If your child does not have lunch or the means to buy lunch, the child will have to call home.  We DO NOT have the means to provide lunches or lunch money to children.

            For those who decide to utilize the POS system, it is very important that you keep records of your child's expenses via the MyMealtime Program.  When the account is low, you must make additional deposits.  The school no longer has a lunch fund for children who forget their money, or for accounts that are insufficient, to borrow money.

            Again, money may, and should be, placed in the lunch account for emergency purposes, as this account may serve as a backup for those days the child forgets his/her money.  

Families have the option to apply for the Free / Reduced lunch program should financial circumstances qualify.

            Please feel free to call Kathy Major, Food Services General Manager (908-874-4805) with any questions or concerns you may have.
