With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, Hadley-Luzerne Central School District’s Food Service Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends.
Parents/Guardians will have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating history report that shows all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and/or lunch within the past thirty days.
To access these services:
1. Simply go to the district web site at
2. Click on the Parents tab on top, follow down to cafeteria and over to the Nutrikids Registration.
3. Or go directly to
From this site you will create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account. All you need is your child’s name, student ID number and school ZIP code (please contact Cindy Woodcock at 696-2112 ext 136 for ID number).
