Plymouth Public Schools Food Services Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child's school meal account at any time. Monies paid into a student account can only be used for the purchase of regular and alternative meals. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child's account balance through a web site called mySchoolBucks.com. By having money in each child's account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends. Also, parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child's eating history report. This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and/or lunch within the past 90 days.

Things to know:

  • If you have more than one child in the District you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account.
  • Payments may be made with a major credit or debit card.

For more information about our online and computerized point of sale payment system for the cafeteria, as well as mySchoolBucks FAQ, please select here.

To insure that your child eats a nutritious, tasty and appealing lunch at school each day, we encourage parents to take advantage of prepaying for lunches so your child will not be tempted to spend his/her lunch money on other items, although they may still pay cash.

We will accept the purchase of prepaid lunches any day of the week. You may prepay by cash or with checks made payable to PLYMOUTH SCHOOL LUNCH. 

      

National School Lunch Program

The Plymouth Public Schools take part in the National School Lunch Program. If your household income is lower than the incomes listed on the chart below, you may qualify for free or reduced price meals. If you receive MA SNAP, MA TAFDC, FDPIR benefits or are a foster child you will qualify. We want to ensure that everyone who is eligible is given the opportunity to receive this benefit. Please complete and return an application. They will be sent home on the first day of school or you can pick one up at any school office. Your application is confidential.

REDUCED LUNCH INFORMATION: Students who are approved for reduced price lunches are entitled to one lunch per day at a cost of 40¢. If a student wants to purchase an additional lunch, they should bring in an additional $2.75 (elementary)/$3.00 (secondary) or $1.25 for an entree only.

FREE LUNCH INFORMATION: Students approved for free lunches will have access to one lunch per day. If a student wants to purchase an additional lunch, they should bring in an additional $2.75 (elementary)/$3.00 (secondary) or $1.25 for an entree only.

 

How to Apply

You may download the application and instructions in PDF form here. (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader). Applications are also available at all school offices.

If you now get MA SNAP, FDPIR or MA TAFDC benefits for the child you are applying for, the application must have the child's name, a MA SNAP, FDPIR or MA TAFDC Agency ID number, and the signature of a parent or caretaker adult. If you are applying for a foster child, the application must have the child's name and an adult signature. If you do not list a MA SNAP, FDPIR or MA TAFDC Agency ID number for the child you are applying for, then the application must have the child's name, the names of all other household members, the amount of income each person got last month and where it came from, the signature of a parent or caretaker adult and the last four digits of that adult's Social Security number or the word "none" if the adult does not have a Social Security number.

If you have any questions regarding the school lunch program, please feel free to contact us at (508) 830-4474.
