You may add money to your child’s account, transfer money from one child to another, and apply for the Free/Reduced Meal Benefit from this site.
If you would like to apply for the Free/Reduced Meal Benefit but do not want to set up an account, you may apply as a guest from the lakeorion.familyportal.cloud site.

There is a $2.95 convenience fee for every $100 deposited. Parents can access this site to check balances and meal purchases at any time. Food Service does not accept personal checks; Cash is not accepted at the elementary level, however, cash deposits can be made at the secondary level.
Children will not be allowed to buy second entrees or ala carte items if there is no money in their account. Please check your child's account at lakeorion.familyportal.cloud.
Accommodations may be made if families need assistance paying the service fees associated with depositing money. Please contact the food service department to inquire. Inquiries will be kept confidential.
Be sure to apply for Free and Reduced Benefits online at the lakeorion.familyportal.cloud.
