They use the debits here and the kids do fine with them. They even used them in the Dark Ages when I was in high school, and everyone managed quite well. We would purchase tickets at 'the office' that looked like the tickets you get at a raffle, for the week or day or whatever, and then use them at the excuse of a cafeteria they had (I didn't like the food that well). Fortunately, it was not a closed campus.

Fun to remember.  I took my lunch all through grade school, and ate in the cafeteria all through high school.  I think I always got a bowl of cream of tomato soup, a little pack of Cheezits and a strawberry icecream--same thing every day.  LOL

I think debit cards are great.  No need for loose change.   But kids today don't ever carry cash... which I think is bad.  I was always taught to at least have some cash in case of emergency.

My Kids had to pay  in real money if they went to the cafeteria.

In my day, we used coins and cash.

Your poor Mother had to cut you sandwiches and think of what she could pack for you.

It was easier in my time one just had bread and margarine and an apple for the teacher to stop a walloping.
