Free Lunches via Lunch Ordering
This article describes how schools can setup Free Lunch Orders through our new Lunch Ordering App (with Shopping Cart). This may come in handy when certain cases require this, such as when prospective students visit the school and want to try out the Cafeteria.
A summary of the steps are as follows:
- Create a Dummy Student and Parent Account
- Invite Parent via Parent portal
- Add Credits for the Parent’s Lunch Ordering
- Order lunches through the Parent Portal
Setup Dummy Student and Parent Accounts
You will need to setup a dummy account for a student and parent. If you want to have separate lunch orders per Grade Level/Homeroom, a dummy student account would need to be created for each grade level. However, all students can still be linked to a single Parent Account.
In order for the student to be excluded from the Attendance Roster (if Homeroom Attendance), set the Enrollment Date to a future date.
If you would be having more than one dummy student (one per grade), link the students as Siblings in order to access them all in a single Parent Portal.
Invite the Parent to the Parent Portal
Invite the dummy parent account by going to the Parent Portal > Invite tab > Click on the Invite button for the dummy parent.
Without a valid credit card, parents can only submit orders using Credits. You will need to add sufficient credits to the parent account, so as to complete lunch orders as necessary.
At this time, credits can only be added by QuickSchools Support Staff. The ability for the School Admin to add credits to users will be available soon.
Order Lunch for Students
Once credits have been added for the Parent, you can order lunch via the Parent Portal and checkout using the credits.
The lunch orders can then be viewed through either the Lunch Ordering > Order Fulfillment tab, or our Lunch Ordering Reports.
To know more about ordering lunches in the Parent Portal, please feel free to check our Ordering Lunch Online (For Parents) Guide.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding setting up Free Lunches, feel free to chat in, or send us an email at email@example.com. Feel free to provide any suggestions or feedback as well.
