To avoid delays in processing and interruption of meal service:

  • Fill in Social Security Number and Adult Signature.
  • For additional benefits, please complete Section 6.



Once a student qualifies, the information is kept confidential in our student records system. Just like parents who pay in advance for their child’s lunch, students simply provide their identification number when obtaining food.

Questions or comments about the food service program may be directed to Andreas Wurzrainer or Laura Luginbill,
at 360-678-2452, awurzrainer@coupeville.k12.wa.us or lluginbill@coupeville.k12.wa.us

Online payments for school lunches

Coupeville School District offers an online payment system called e~Funds for Schools. e-Funds is available for parents and guardians who choose to make food service payments online using their checking account or credit or debit card account. The convenience and flexibility of e~Funds For Schools will help to eliminate last minute check writing, improve efficiencies, and help reduce costs.

Payments can be made at any time through the e~Funds site available through Family Access. This service is provided by a third-party service provider, which charges a nominal service fee:

  • $1.00 for electronic checking account payments.*

  • $1.95 for debit and credit card payments.

As with other online payments, it will take 2-3 days for payments to process.

Payments for all students in a family can be made in a single session and for a single fee, ensuring that all lunch accounts are current. There is also an option to schedule a series of payments during the school year. Please review the account options carefully to determine the best option for your family.

*Please note: NSF payments from a checking account will automatically be re-submitted. If, after the third attempt, the account does not have sufficient funds, there will be a fee of $15 assessed.
