Food Services- Culinart & MyPaymentsPlus
We are thrilled with our food service provider, Culinart Group, and hope your family will be too.

If you haven't already signed up, 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 (if you had an account, last year, you simply need to log in to add additional funds, when you are ready). 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 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 free periods, at morning break, at lunch, or after school.
