ORDERING SCHOOL MEALS

For the 2020-2021 school year, all meals are free of charge for all students.  We offer curbside pickup of meal bundles for our virtual students, and hot meals daily for our face-to-face students.  We are partnering with a third-party vendor, Gourmet Express, to provide tasty, nutritious meals for all students.  Because of this, we are asking our families to order meals one week in advance so that our vendor has time to order and prep for deliveries at the start of the week. 

Linked here are detailed instructions for ordering meals through PayPams.com. If you have trouble setting up your account, or associating your students, or placing an order, please email schoolnutrition@amanaacademy.org for assistance. 

October 2021 Menu (School Gourmet)

Amana participates in the National Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program.

All parents will need to complete 2021-2022 Household Application and FAQs regardless of whether you are applying for the programs or not. These applications are available online, at Open House, and at the front desk. You can also apply online at: https://paypams.com/OnlineApp.aspx

Free and reduced-price applications are distributed during orientation, and all families are asked to complete them, regardless of income level, as the school may receive additional funding as a result. Application information is confidential and will be used to determine eligibility.

Please read the letter and Frequently Asked Questions linked below, and then access the downloadable application and instructions in the attachments. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have. You may also visit the Lunch Menu & Payment Information Page to view instructions for adding money to your child’s account.
