• Donations, Refunds and Monetary Transfers

    Donations

    • We are grateful for the outreach from many of our parents and community members asking how they can help support school meals and alternative food distribution efforts.
    • To donate the balance of your student's account complete this form. You may choose for your donation to go to:
      • Helping other students who do not have sufficient funds for their meal.
      • Child Nutrition Services to support school meal programming for students.
    • Make a single or recurring donation using the auto-withdrawal feature on MySchoolBucks.com.  This is the same site that CNS offers free to families to manage their student’s meal account. Just go to the “School Store” at the top of your home page, select “Browse All Items”, then “School Meal Donations".
    • Individuals or organizations that want to donate to support CNS operations or to donate to one or more school Angel Accounts can call the CNS Central Office at 919-856-2918 to arrange for a contribution.

    Students who exited WCPSS before 2015 (Untraceable Owners)

    Wake County Public School System students who graduated or exited the district before 2015 may have left funds in their meal accounts. The district is unable to trace those remaining funds to individual students. If you believe you left funds in your student's meal account and would like to request a refund, complete the Refund Form before September 1, 2022, or the funds will be donated to WCPSS Child Nutrition Services to be used to support the district's school meal program for students. If you need assistance, contact Child Nutrition Services at 919-856-2918.
