Food Services - Culinart and MyPaymentsPlus 
We are thrilled with our food service provider, Culinart Group, and hope your family will be too. There's an easy way to make sure your child is able to make food purchases during the school day (morning, lunch and after school). We use MyPaymentsPlus for student charge accounts so that students never have to carry cash to school. Student accounts can be front-loaded, in any amount, allowing you full control of your child's purchasing power.

You are able to set-up your account, now, by visiting MyPaymentsPlus and following the prompts to create a new account. You will need your student’s ID number to set up your account. This can be found under your child’s contact card when logging in to the school website at

Please be in touch with Admissions to let us know if we can help direct your questions about setting up your account or about our food service provider, Culinart Group or the menus specific to Wilmington Friends School. 

Students may make purchases during their morning snack break, at lunch or after school.
