Food Services

Good nutrition fuels the brain. That’s why we provide our students with reasonably priced, nutritious meal choices at each of our school locations.

How to Pay for Meals

During the summer of 2022, we purchased MBA Cafe to manage all aspects of our food services program. MBA Cafe is integrated with our PowerSchool student information system to make student data seamlessly available while serving breakfast and lunch, and when generating reports.

We continue to partner with eFunds for Schools as an online tool for parents who wish to electronically provide funds for their students who purchase breakfast and lunch items at school. The move to MBA Cafe requires parents to associate each of their students with their eFunds account because there is no longer a single family account available.
