ABSTRACT
The article discusses the annual School Industry Census Report conducted by the "FoodService Director," which revealed that nearly three-quarters of school districts in the U.S. allow students to use various cashless payment methods. Systems requiring students to enter personal identification numbers are most frequently used. Other methods include online pre-payments, debit cards or accounts and monthly billing statements. At schools accepting cashless, more than 50% of school meals are purchased via cashless payment.
