INTRODUCTION n n n School lunch programs are overbudgeted and mired ink. Students are INTRODUCTION n n n School lunch programs are overbudgeted and mired ink. Students are forced to wait 10 -15 minutes in line and then gulp down their lunch. Parents can’t be sure of what their children are eating in their school cafeteria. 3

PROBLEM STATEMENT School cafeteria lines are generally inefficient; many cafeteria workers perform tasks that PROBLEM STATEMENT School cafeteria lines are generally inefficient; many cafeteria workers perform tasks that can be automated. n Children are still paying with physical currencies. n Parents should be more involved in the decision process. n 4

PROPOSED SOLUTION n A program that integrates biometric identification, the ease of touch screen PROPOSED SOLUTION n A program that integrates biometric identification, the ease of touch screen food selection, while at the same time incorporating the use of automated emails notifications to the parents, and automatic funds transfer from the child’s cafeteria account eliminating the need for a child to bring money to school 5

Program Functions Overview n Biometric identification n n Parent controlled student debit account n Program Functions Overview n Biometric identification n n Parent controlled student debit account n n Eliminating need for physical currency Automated email notifications n n using thin client-server database Includes food selections and debit balance Touch screen interface n Intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) 6
