Parent Guide to Valwood School Lunch Program 2021-2022

Updates and Transitions for the New School Year

The Pepi Companies is proud to provide Valwood students and staff with the best lunch program around! The team here at Pepi is eagerly preparing for the new school year, and we are especially excited to get back to Biometrics as a simple and easy checkout method! It is our purpose to provide the greatest experience possible for the students and staff; not only through fresh, deliciously prepared meals, but through value and savings as well. It is our pleasure to serve the students and staff of Valwood School and we look forward to your feedback on these great value-added solutions!

We will also continue to use and enhance the Pepi more card program – a convenient prepaid and Loyalty program. The program offers parents and caregiver’s 24/7 tools to track their student’s eating patterns, receive instant bonus cash, and make payments in a secure online environment. As always, our stellar staff’s commitment to you and your children is to make lunch a Highlight through our fresh and  healthy approach to foodservice and brighten any day with a smile!

An Overview of the Pepi more program

Based on feedback each year, the more program offers parents an enhanced experience:

  1. More BIOMETRICS are back! This safe, reliable form of payment eliminates the need for another card AND remedies the occasional misplaced card. With our encrypted PCI tokenization, we have secured all information while providing a payment solution that is always with your student – their digital fingerprint. We will work with the faculty to update each student’s account during the first month of school.
  2. More Connections – Not only do we continue to partner with Valiant Athletics, as well as lunch service and concessions, but it has been our privilege to connect and give back to the Arts program as well – making what’s important to YOU, important to Pepi!
  3. More Visibility – Account holders can receive an emailed receipt each time their student(s) make a purchase at any of the Pepi Foods locations. (If you prefer not to receive email receipts, simply turn it of in the settings menu of your more portal.)
  4. More Accessibility – Account holders can manage their student’s accounts, view transaction history and MORE anytime, anywhere through a secure and convenient, online portal: www.pepifoods.com. PLUS, this year we have added a 24/7 VIP “Text To” Number: 334.405.4633. We are ALWAYS OPEN, ALWAYS ON! This added feature gives us the opportunity to always provide a prompt response and feedback via  text, giving you the support you need, when you need it!
Pepi Customer Service Reps are available to answer questions about activating and managing your account.
They may be reached via phone: 800.356.4068 or email: pepiservice@pepifoods.com.
