    Ours is pretty much the same as Susan's. Students have a card which
    they use to pay for lunch and parents can put money in the account.
    (Also we have a high percentage of students who qualify for
    free/reduced price lunch, this is the reason for the cards... others
    cannot tell who is paying or has reduced price since everyone has
    the same card).

    Occasionally a club will order a pizza and it is handled by the
    student activities office. If a parent drops off something (food or
    otherwise) it also goes to the student activities office and the
    student is sent a note/pass to class with instructions to pick it up
    between classes or some other non-disruptive time (not during
    class). But no, we do have parents dropping off food all the time!
