A point of sale integrated vending machine can serve as a separate cafeteria line… selling both reimbursable meals for breakfast or lunch along with ala carte sales on the basis of both cash and POS account balance. Your POS program will determine if it a meal will be free, reduced or full price meal and be able to determine if the student has already received a meal during that feeding timeframe.
Many (but not all) K12 School Lunch POS companies offer a school vending license. Check with Vend-ucation as we work with each of the POS/school vending integration platforms. Vend-ucation can offer POS interfaced vending capabilities to about 65% of USA schools. We even offer our own license free school vending POS software for schools without a POS program that interfaces with vending.
