Cafeteria Accounts - MyKidsSpending
The program we are now using for online ordering and payments is MyKidsSpending. If you have a GCA student, your child's/children's name(s) will already be in the system. If you already have activated your account, use your log in to order and add funds when needed. Please skip down to Funding Accounts and Ordering. If you have not yet activated your account, please see the steps below. Click on the images to expand them.
To start, navigate to www.mykidsspending.com. At this point, you will have two options. Option A is to use your current MKS log in received last year and proceed from there. If you do not recall your password, you may click the ‘send password’ button and an email will be sent to your email address to reset your password.
If you have not yet activated an account for your family, your first step will be to email email@example.com and request your student's (or students') ID number(s). Please provide the student names in the email. Once you have received the Student ID numbers from the cafeteria, you can proceed to Option B.
At this stage, fill out all the information. If you are adding more than one student, choose that option after you've entered the information for the first student. When you are done, click on Complete Registration. You will then receive a verification email from MyKidsSpending.
Now you are ready to fund your account and order off of the menu.
Funding Accounts and Ordering
Return to MyKidsSpending and log in to your account.
Your first step is to add money or "fund" your child's account. On the home page, you'll see three yellow buttons: Statements, Auto Transfers and Fund Accounts. If you would like money to be automatically transferred from your account, choose Auto Transfers. If not, click on Fund Accounts. Should you choose, you can switch to auto transfers at any time.
Enter the amount you want to put in the account and hit Update. At this time, you need to choose whether you are going to fund by Credit Card, or Electronic Check.
If you choose Credit Card, you'll be prompted to fill out the page below.
If you choose Electronic Check, you'll be prompted to fill out this page.
At this time, you are ready to order your child's meals.
You will see your student's name and other information. Simply click on the ‘order meals’ button. This will open the calendar for the week.
You can then click on the drop-down menus for the day you wish to order and select items. You can only select one item per drop down menu category. Once you have selected the items for the days you want to order for, click on submit. Ordering menus will be posted every Friday for the next week. You may order daily or for the entire week at one time.
Please note: at 7:30 am on the day of the lunch, the ordering menu will be closed and sent for processing. Once processed you will receive an email confirming your order.
Should there not be enough funds on the account for what is ordered, you will receive an email letting you know the order could not be processed.
