The Food Services Department is excited to announce SchoolCafe as our new online payment system. SchoolCafe is your one-stop-shop to make payments, view menus, set purchase restrictions, and apply for free or reduced meals. Download the SchoolCafe app now from the App Store and/or Google Play. You can access the website at http://www.schoolcafe.com. Instructions on how to register with SchoolCafe and make payments can be found here.
As always, our school cafeterias accept checks or cash payments. Please send payments in a sealed envelope with your child’s full name written on the envelope/check memo line. Please make the check payable to MTSD Cafeteria Fund, and ensure the check is written in dark blue or black ink.
Funds previously deposited through MySchoolBucks remain in your student’s account. No purchase restrictions will carry over to the new POS program. You can set restrictions yourself on the app/website. If your child has a restriction due to allergies or other medical conditions, please contact the school nurse and our nutritionist, Kristen Feaga, at email@example.com or 717-735-1721.
SchoolCafe charges a convenience fee to make credit or debit card payments. These charges are not set by MTSD, and MTSD does not collect the funds.
