What is Cloud Meals?

Cloud Meals provides a simple, streamlined, and cost effective online solution to ordering school meals.

As the school, you will enter the possible meal selections for the coming weeks into the system. Parents will log in, place orders for their children, and pay instantly via a secure online checkout.

You are then able to extract selections from the system in a variety of formats, which can be passed onto your catering team.

It's that simple!
