New Dining Services Partner Introduces Exciting New Food Options and Declining Balance Cashless Payment System

Kellenberg and CulinArt Group open the doors to an all-new dining experience on September 8. Students, faculty, and staff can look forward to…

The Kellenberg Cafe

  • Fresh-from-the-grill menu of burgers, sandwiches, tenders, and more available every day

  • Comfort-style hot entrees with side dishes, including daily vegetarian options

  • Rotation of flatbreads, pizza, and quesadillas

  • CulinArt’s signature ‘Eat Well’ recipes

The Market at Kellenberg

  • Variety of grab n’ go sandwiches, salads, and snack packs, made fresh daily
  • Assortment of beverages and on-trend snacks
  • Daily hot breakfast sandwiches
  • Open throughout the day with service in the afternoon as well

We are also pleased to announce the introduction of a new cashless dining program at Kellenberg. This convenient declining balance system aligns with student ID cards. The program alleviates the burden of students having to carry cash and also helps speed up the check-out process during the lunch rush. Students can check out in a fraction of the time it takes to pay with cash by simply scanning their ID badge at the register. The new cafeteria design will include both traditional registers with cashiers as well as self-checkout registers. Students will be notified when their card balance falls below $15, at which time parents will also be notified via email. Parents may deposit funds into their child’s account at any time, and may also opt to set their account to conveniently auto-reload. Parents or guardians can track when and how their money is being spent via MyKidsSpending.com. Detailed instructions on the enrollment process are enclosed. Please note that cash and credit cards will also be accepted at the cafeteria registers. The Market will only have a self-checkout register accepting student cards and credit cards.

We look forward to a healthy, exciting, and tasty school year!

5. Each participating student is issued a Dining Service ID Number, to which their deposits are applied, and from which your child can make daily purchases in the school’s cafeteria. The ID Number will align with the student’s ID number which is on their ID card.
