Free or Reduced Price Meal Program

The Milford Schools participate in the National School Lunch Program where families who qualify can receive free meals or reduced price meals (for lunch $.40, breakfast $.30 per day). Family Applications are available in powerschool parent portal. Only one application per family is required. Only one application per family is required. Note that parents need to fill out a new application every year.

Paying for School Lunches

The Milford Schools use a computerized Point-of-Sale Program where all students have an account ready to be used for the purchase of lunches and snacks. Students in Kindergarten and 1st grade are given bar coded cards with neck straps to access their accounts at the serving line. All other grades are issued Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) that each child memorizes and enters at the serving line. Using PIN numbers has worked out very well since the students don’t need to bring lunch cards to the cafeteria. The serving lines move much faster with the computerized point-of-sale allowing students more time to eat!!

Three Ways to Pay for school lunches using the computerized system. Prepay at school, prepay using a credit card at MySchoolBucks.com, or pay cash. Also, families who qualify may apply for free or reduced priced meals.

Prepay at School

Pre-payments are welcome for all students beginning the first day of school. All children may deposit money on their accounts for lunches or a la carte items such as milk, ice cream and other snacks. Use the deposit slip on the menu and send a check made out to Milford Food Services. All prepayments are sent to the school kitchen for processing. Deposits are available for lunch the same day.

Prepay with a Credit Card at MySchoolBucks.com

Parents can pay for school lunches using a credit card and check student account balances through the website MySchoolBucks.com. To get started, all you need is your child’s name, grade and full student id number (not pin number), and birth date. Visit MySchoolBucks.com for more information.

Please note - a fee of $1.95 will be charged for each credit card transaction.


Pay Cash

Cash is accepted on a daily basis.

Parent Suggestion: Parents can keep track of how many lunches have been prepaid in order to know when to send in more lunch money.

We make every effort to communicate with parents by sending negative balance letters on a daily basis and low balance letters once per week.

Parents can find out their child’s lunch account balance every day if their child's account is prepaid using MySchoolBucks.com.  Once an account is set up for each child at MySchoolBucks.com, the lunch account balances are updated every morning.

Parents may also contact the kitchen manager to get their child’s lunch account balance. The best way to reach the Kitchen Manager is by email. In addition, the kitchen manager can print a report that will detail what the child has purchased over a period of time.

These are the ways we communicate with parents to reduce the number of students who do not have lunch money on their account. Embarrassing situations are best avoided when the child’s account maintains a positive balance.
