Manage Your Child’s Lunch Account Using SPS EZPay

Vandalia-Butler City Schools has made it easier for parents to manage their students’ lunch accounts with the new SPS EZpay system. With EZpay, parents can:

  • Add money to their child’s lunch account using a credit or debit card.
  • View their child’s lunch account balance online.
  • Receive email notifications when the balance drops below $15.

To use the system, simply:

  • Click here to access SPS EZPay.
  • Register each child using his or her student ID number, which is the same number used for the pre-paid lunch program and the Parent Internet Viewer.

The EZpay system is free, and it is only available online. Each school building continues to accept cash and checks.

No personal information about students is available online, and the district does not keep the credit card information on file. Questions may be directed to the Vandalia-Butler City Schools Food Service Department at 415-6421 or to 1-866-MyEZpay (866-693-9729) or via email at

Pre-payment Program

As a safety precaution for our students and staff, the Vandalia Butler food service department will not be able to accept cash or checks during meal service. Parents are strongly encouraged to place funds on their student’s meal account using the SPS EZpay website. The EZpay link is located on the website under the Parents and Students tab.

If cash or a check must be sent to school with your student, we are asking that this be done on Mondays. Funds should be in a sealed envelope with the full name and student ID number of the student listed on the outside of the envelope. Money will also be accepted daily at the Vandalia Board of Education office.

Checks should be made payable to the Vandalia Butler Food Service Department. Please state the student’s first and last name.

Please note that a service fee of $10.00 will be charged for each returned check.


Students may charge breakfast or lunch if necessary. Please note that a negative balance may not exceed $-12.00 at Demmitt, Helke, or Smith and $-12.00 at Morton and the High School. Students will be offered an alternative meal (kitchens discretion) if they exceed the charge limit. Students may not purchase a la carte items if they have a negative balance.

No charging of meals will be allowed after May 18, 2023

Meal history and account balances can be located on the SPS EZPay website.
