Welcome to Drew Dining!

As of July 1, 2023, Drew now manages its own School Nutrition program.  As we embark on the 2023 – 2024 school year, our new School Nutrition staff is excited to deliver enhanced menu items for both students and staff. Multiple options will be available during every dining service including Hot Meal options that will not repeat on the menu for at least 4 weeks.

As a result, several things have changed. All families wishing to purchase school meals will need to create a new School Nutrition Account on the My MealTime site regardless of your pay status. Here is what you need to know:

Step 1

Click here and create a new school meal account at MyMealTime.com

Step 2

Activate your account by depositing funds.

Step 3

Apply for Free or Reduced Fee Meals   
*We encourage everyone to apply.

*Any current or new Drew family that qualified for free or reduced priced meals in the last school year will have their eligibility carryover until September 1, 2023. Families will be contacted to re-apply on or before that date.

Helpful Tips to Assist in Establishing Student MealTime Accounts:

  • If you are attempting to locate your student’s ID Number, please refer to your student’s schedule provided at Open House. The Student ID Number is located on the schedule sheet. You may also stop by the Front Desk for assistance.
  • If you have a “New to Drew” student who recently completed enrollment, your student may not have yet been assigned a Student ID number. If this is the case, they cannot yet create a meal account in MealTime. If this is the case,  your student will still be served in the breakfast and lunch lines, and their names will be recorded at the Point of Sale station.  

As a courtesy to families, Drew will accommodate any student who does not have a MealTime account until the second week of school or until the MealTime account is created, whichever occurs first. This courtesy will be extended to any “New to Drew” or “returning families” that have not yet had the opportunity to create their accounts.

Thank you for your patience as we roll out Drew’s new Nutrition Program.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How Much Do Meals Cost?

**The Georgia State Board of Education has voted to cover the cost of reduced-price meals for any student approved for reduced-price meals

for the 2023-2024 school year. Therefore, the student will not be charged for these meals.
