How To Purchase Meals

  • The Parma City School District accepts the following forms of payment for meals:

    Online(Preferred): To pay online, go to www.MySchoolBucks.com.  MySchoolBucks enables parents to monitor students’ cafeteria transactions, create low balance alerts, and prepay for cafeteria food purchases. Online pre-payment saves time for parents, students, and cafeteria staff.

    Check: Please make checks payable to ‘Cafeteria Account’ and bring/send the check to the cafeteria cashier in the morning.  Include the student’s name(s) and ID number(s) on the check. The minimum deposit for lunches is $15.00 (paid lunch) and $2.00 (reduced lunch).

    Cash: For security purposes, we discourage payment with cash, which can be misplaced, lost or stolen. The Nutrition Services Department will not be responsible for stolen or lost cash.  The minimum deposit for lunches is $15.00 (paid lunch) and $2.00 (reduced lunch). Cash may be brought to the cafeteria cashier in the morning for deposit into the student’s account.
