TAMPA, Fla — Due to the coronavirus, students finished out the school year at home while online learning.

That means hundreds of dollars worth of unused lunch money should still be left in your child's account.

ABC Action News reached out to local districts to see what your options are.


For Hillsborough County Schools, you can request a refund online. Otherwise, the money will stay in your student's account until next year.

For Pasco County Schools, families can also request a refund if they don't want the money to rollover.

They can also donate the money to the Hardship Fund for Disadvantaged Students, or transfer it to another student's account.

For Pinellas County Schools, the money will roll over into the next school year.
