Meal Payment / MySchoolBucks

  • MySchoolBucks Graphic  


    A complete breakfast and lunch are available to all District 211 students at no charge for the entire 2021-2022 school year through federal funding for the school meals program. Snacks and additional meals may be available for purchase. All students must use their student ID card to access meal benefits and prepayment accounts.

    Credit card payments can be made using the food service payment system at If parents do not have a current MySchoolBucks account, they will need to set up a new account. Parents can view balances and transaction history, create low-balance email alerts, and set up automatic account replenishment. If you previously had an automatic payment scheduled, please review the status for this school year. All-District 211 account balances from the previous school year will roll over into the new school year. 


    Unused balances will roll over into the next school year for all returning students.  Refunds and requests for balance transfer for students graduating or withdrawing is not automatic.  Upon written request of a parent/guardian, unused meal funds may be refunded, transferred to another District 211 sibling, or donated to an economically disadvantaged student with a negative food service account balance. 

    Meal account refunds must be requested in writing and will be issued by check to the parent/guardian and mailed to the home address provided, regardless of the method of original payment. Refunds not requested within one year of graduation or transfer out of the District are forfeited. 

    Please email the Food Service Department at to request a refund or a transfer of funds to a sibling.  Include your student’s name, ID number, school and name & address for the check refund.  For a sibling transfer, please include the name, ID number, and school for each student.
