Attention: Parents with children having food allergies:
The Dunellen School District is working with Maschio's Food Services to keep our students healthy and safe.  If your child has food allergies, Maschio's can offer a substitute meal plan.  Please visit our Support Page for Parents of Children with Allergies





The Dunellen School District offers free and reduced meal prices for those families who qualify, which is determined by completing a free and reduced meal application.

For the 2020-21 school year the application will be available for completion online.

Please read the Letter to Parents  for meal prices and general information on filling out the free and reduced meal application.  The Letter to Parents is also available in Spanish .

Below is a direct link to the online application as well as step-by-step instructions to assist with the application process:

Online Application  

As soon as you complete the online application your approval status will be updated without delay.  If eligible, your child will receive free breakfast and lunch the following school day.

Please be reminded that if your child was eligible for meal benefits as of June 18, 2020, he/she will still receive benefits until October 21, 2020.  To continue to receive benefits after October 21st, a new application must be completed.

  Dunellen School District offers Payschools  for  our parents to fund student cafete ria accounts.

  • The meal process is automated for both parents and the school so errors are minimized and the process is standardized.
  • Using Payschools  there is not a chance of lost lunch money from home to the serving lines!
  • Payments can be made by credit card 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the parents’ convenience.
  • Payments can also be made by ACH (Electronic Check). 
  • Parents can review what their students are actually purchasing along with account balance information.​

  During the school year, you may send a check or money order payable to “Dunellen Board of Education” in an envelope to the attention of the “Cafeteria”.  For security reasons, we recommend that these payments be sent in one of these two forms.  Please make sure you put the following information on the sealed envelope:  

Child’s name - School Teacher & Grade - Amount of Money Enclosed

  This envelope can be delivered to the cashier when paying for their meal  during their breakfast or lunch period
