Huntsville City Schools launches new lunch app

Just in time for the new school year Huntsville City Schools is launching a new app that allows parents and students to see school menus, pay for lunches and even give feedback on what was served with just the click of a button.

Students who attend Huntsville City Schools now have access to their daily lunch menu on their phones. The app is called EZSchoolLunch.

"The food became much more bland than it was before," Jack Duncan, parent.

Jack Duncan is the parent of a rising junior. He says when his son was at Huntsville High School he opted to bring his own lunch, after seeing the quality of the food.

Now Huntsville-area students will not only be able to rate the meals served, but see what's for lunch in the coming days. Parents will be able to pay for lunches online. "This app may streamline that process a good bit"

While the app streamlines the process and makes it more modern, Duncan said they used the schools website to find that information in the past.

"That has always been available for several years"

Huntsville City School representatives told me they hope this app helps boost lunch participation. When students rate meal choices that information is sent back to the Child Nutrition Program department.
