Meals are still free, but the payment system has changed! We are no longer using MyPaymentsPlus, and if you would like to add money to your student’s meal account, you will have to create a School Cafe account and do it there. If you had a balance on your meal account it automatically transferred into School Cafe. Meal account funds are necessary to purchase items like second entrees, a la carte items, and side salads.
Please see the resources below to help with the transition.
All students have a personal meal account. Students access their account using their six-digit student ID#.
As you may already be aware, school lunches are now FREE for BVSD students. Students are allowed one free entree per day, along with unlimited salad from the salad bar to accompany their meal. Students are also allowed a free breakfast each day at school.
Second entrees and a la carte items purchased without a full meal (like a side salad, milk, or fruit) can still be purchased using your student's meal account. Putting money on your student’s account in advance eliminates the need for your child to remember to bring money to school daily. Having money in their account also helps keep lunch lines moving.
Remember, if your student is bringing lunch from home, they are still able to purchase milk, fruit and side salad bar.
