Payment Options:

Option 1:  Auto Withdrawal
Willmar Public Schools offers automatic withdrawal from your bank account via Bremer Bank as a payment option for our meal programs. We encourage this payment option for all reduced and full paid students. This is a convenient, easy and cost effective option to pay for your student's meals. A new form must be completed each school year. A voided check is required with this process or you may turn in a letter from your bank indicating your account information. This letter must be printed on the bank's official letterhead. If you would like to take advantage of Automatic Withdrawal please complete the Automatic Withdrawal Form and return it to:

Processing Meal Payments

All payments that we receive will be distributed equally between all students in your household, unless you notify us otherwise. We always pay off any negative balances within your household before we equally distribute payments. If you would like to specify individual percentages for your students, please email the Food and Nutrition Services Office at or call by phone at (320) 231-8526. We will keep the same distribution percentage you specify until we hear otherwise from you. We are also able to transfer money between your household's individual accounts upon your request.
