Food service managers and front office professionals are able to view a variety of lunch reports in jmc Office. View everything you need to know about how much food is served, your free and reduced status and deposits and low balances.

All reports for the Lunch module are under Lunch > Reports. These reports make sense of all the lunch data you can track in a concise, easy to understand way. Typically they fall into three categories.

  • How much food was served

  • Free and Reduced Status

  • Deposits and Low Balances

How much food was served

These reports track everything from meal purchases to a la cartes to reimbursables to get you accurate counts of items sold.

  • Meals Served: view breakfasts, lunches, and extra milks served over any date range, price group, and building

  • A La Carte Served: view a la carte items served over any date range, price group, and building, including item quantity and dollar amount

  • A La Carte Detail: list student names who purchased a la carte items in any date range, price group, and building

  • Reimbursables: count how many free, reduced, and full paying meals were served for reporting to the state Department of Education at the end of each month including totals for state and federal reimbursement amounts

Free and Reduced Status

Free and reduced reporting is a key step in making sure all students receive the appropriate meal prices.

  • Lunch Status: show which students are free or reduced during any date range including reasons how determinations were made.

  • Benefit Issuance List: list free and reduced students in any date range grouped by reason for status.

  • Missing Application Check: find students who have carried over from the prior school year as free or reduced but have not submitted an application in the current school year.

  • Random 3% and Error Prone 3% of Free/Reduced Accounts: list the families who meet the random 3% or error prone 3% criteria set by the Department of Education.

Deposits and Low Balances

Alerting families to low balances in a timely manner and preparing for deposits help keep the financial side of the lunch module running smoothly.

  • Balance Sheet: display the current family account balances in a list form.

  • Low Balance Notices: send a notice to families indicating a deposit is needed to keep their balance positive.

  • Summary: list the amount of money taken in at the "Point of Sale" or office to ensure accurate deposit reporting.
