Many schools are turning to online dinner money systems to guarantee the safety and security of their finances.

Key benefits a dinner money system provides:

  • Retains control over finances and can oversee incoming and outgoing payments
  • Reduces human error
  • Improved audit trail; everything is recorded
  • Parents easily manage their child's meal history online
  • Should parents fail to keep up with payments; the system will automatically generate personalised reminder letters for them.

Reduce food waste

Up to 78% of food waste in both primary and secondary schools is avoidable. 

Food is prepared but not served - this is the likely outcome of a school without a meal ordering system, as the kitchen must prepare for an unknown number of children with unknown preferences.

Cooking meals to order will reduce this issue. With a good catering system in place, schools can have more control over the waste from school meals.
