Using PowerLunch with Lunchtime Solutions
Hi All,
We contract out our lunch program with Lunchtime Solutions.  In the past we have used a separate system (I don't know what) to record all meal transactions. Lunchtime has separate pricing for different breakfast choices or entree or drink choices.  Now we are going to start using PowerLunch to record meal transactions.  Those pricing choices are pretty limited in comparison.  I have not seen anything to make me think I can change them. (I could very well be missing something as I was looking quite hurriedly)  My question is how  schools have made other pricing structures work with PowerLunch.  Thanks in advance.

Any thing sold other then a full meal in PowerLunch must be done as a A La Carte item.     You click off of the box that says full meal charge and only type in the amount of the A La Carte item you sold.   

We had our lunch screen customized so that different items on the screen can be selected and the added together.  Luchtime Solutions has so many a la carte items that it was hard for the ladies to add it up.    But in the end it does put one price in the a la carte item area.

We use the A la Carte for PowerLunch customization found on the PowerScource Exchange site.  You can set up almost anything you want on it.  It also itemizes the sales for the parents to see exactly what their student is purchasing rather than dumping everything into "A la Carte".  We love it!

Who did your customization?

It's a simple download from PowerSource.  If you are hosted and use CPM  you then just import the zip file.  If you do not use CPM you can just place the files in the proper web-root directories on your server.  The directions that come with it are fairly easy to follow.

Thanks Kim (and everyone!) I found that customization after I posted this article and was trying to decide if that was the best way to go.
