Following each purchase, the amount on the card will be debited with the balance remaining available for future purchases. Students and campers using a cash card will receive a 10% discount versus regular menu prices. Value may be added to the card at any time during the six weeks of Summer Lab 2014; children with low balances will receive notice at the time of their transactions.
