Services Branch: Student Meal Program

The Student Meal Program (SMP) was established by a Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Department of Defense (DoD) in 1980. Its purpose, as directed by the USDA regulations and guidelines is to provide wholesome, nutritious meals to children daily. DoDEA schools serve over seven million meals annually in the United States and overseas.

DoDEA Pacific Lunch Students

In the Pacific, the Program is operated by a School Food Authority (SFA) and is responsible for following the USDA regulations, guidelines and requirements of the SMP. While not the only SFA in the Pacific, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (The Exchange) is the largest provider of student meals on military installations. The Exchange also provides Free and Reduced-Price meals to students who qualify under Federal Guidelines. Additional, in certain areas the school lunch program is run by the Navy Exchange (NEX), Marine Corps Community Service (MCCS) and Prestige Foods. Each District in the Pacific (Okinawa, Japan, Korea), including Guam, can provide more information on eligibility for the program.

  2. Login using your username and password. 
  3. Select "Manage Profile" below "Parent Functions" on the left side of your screen.
  4. Click the box next to "Send Low Balance Notifications" below "Low Balance Notifications.
  5. Enter the dollar threshold at which K12 Payment Notification will notify you when the account balance reaches this amount. 
  6. Select whether you would like to be notified by email, text (for only specific cell phone carriers) or both.
  7. Click "Save Profile" at the bottom of the screen.

Please see our attached user guide and FAQs for additional information. 

Additionally, the Free and Reduced Price Meals Program was restored on 1 Oct. 2014 for eligible families. The application for Free/Reduced Price Meals and Instructions for our DoDEA Guam District schools are now available online. Applications are also available at the main office of your school. You may hand deliver your application to the front office of the District Superintendent's Office (Bldg 100, USNH) or to any DoDEA Guam District school.
