York Prep Launches New Food Program for 2020/21

York Preparatory Academy is pleased to offer delicious healthy food options through our new food service program! In the 2020/21 school year, York Prep will begin preparing all of our meals on-campus in our food prep kitchen located in our brand new Field House building. 

Our new meals program called Meals Plus will allow families to access our interactive menus, view nutritional content, load money onto your student's account, and see pertinent food announcements. Instructions on our Meals Plus program will be released in upcoming school announcements. 

New call-to-action


York Preparatory Academy offers a free/reduced lunch program with wonderful options for your student. There are great benefits to students and families participating in this program! Please feel free to contact Ms. Adams with any questions at hally.adams@yorkprepsc.org.

Online Free and Reduced Lunch Applications

Each school year we ask all families to complete an application to apply for school meal benefits. You can now apply online for your student to receive free or reduced price school meals. Your application will be sent from a secure website directly to York Preparatory Academy,so you don’t need to worry about filling out a paper form that could be lost or misplaced.

LunchApplication.com has been designed to make it easy for you to know exactly what information you need to provide and to guide you through the process. Once your application has been received, YPA will determine your eligibility and send you a letter with the results. Or, you can create an account on LunchApplication.com and you will receive your results via email. LunchApplication.com is an easy, secure and convenient way to apply for free or reduced meals. 

To apply, simply go to LunchApplication.com and click “Apply Now.”

Pandemic EBT

Pandemic EBT is a one-time electronic benefit transfer to help supplement family food costs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and prolonged school closures. Please click on the following LINK for additional information.


YPA has a "No Child Hungry Policy" meaning, a student who comes to school without money or a lunch from home will be served a lunch. The student will be charged for the meal and will show a negative balance in their Meals Plus account. Food Services will notify the parent/guardian and the finance department at the end of the day. The parent/guardian will be responsible for adding money to the students account in order to cover the cost of the charged meal. The second time a student is charged for a meal, food services will contact the principal at the end of the day and they will contact the student's parent/guardian.

This Institution is an equal opportunity provider.
