SSA uses MyPaymentsPlus, an online prepayment system, for meal fees. Parents deposit money into an account for each child, which is drawn down as the child purchases food and drink from the cafeteria. Parents can access their accounts at www.mypaymentsplus.com or via the MyPaymentsPlus iOS app to check balances and view their child's purchase history.
