Welcome to the District 272 Department of Cafeteria Services. Our mission is to provide safe, nutritious, and appetizing meals at a fair price to promote the proper growth and development of every student in District 272.

The purpose of this site is to familiarize students and parents or guardians with our school lunch programs and menus. 

Amboy CUSD #272 schools utilize the Lunchbox Point of Sale (POS) program that enables your students to purchase their lunches electronically each day. Free and reduced priced meals are provided for qualifying students under the National School Lunch Program.

Lunchbox POS is a debit system similar to a retail establishment that enables students to purchase lunch electronically. The cost of food is deducted from student accounts. Students access their account through the use of their personal ID number. Every student at Amboy Junior High School and Amboy High School is issued a hard plastic, picture ID with a personal bar code printed on it. When the student goes through the lunch line, they scan their ID card at the register and their lunch purchases are deducted from their account. Students at Amboy Central Elementary use the same system, but are not required to use ID cards.

Students who receive free or reduced price meals must also scan their cards, but will never be identified as receiving free or reduced meals to any other student. Students receiving free or reduced meal prices must take a whole lunch. A'la carte purchases are charged at the full price.

The Lunchbox program is not like a credit card where you make purchases and then pay for them later. Payments for your child's lunches must be sent to the school weekly or monthly. Each school has their own procedure for collecting lunch money. For your convenience, lunch prepayment forms can also be printed out and sent to your child's school. The school will then enter the amount sent into your child's account. Please see individual school links below for forms and more detailed information on cafeteria procedures.
