Breakfast and lunch programs

COUNTYWIDE — All students can have one breakfast meal at no charge consisting of an entree item, fruit choice and milk. Under a federal program, 64 schools in Pinellas County offer lunch at no charge to all students.

Families of students at schools in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program will not need to submit applications for free/reduced-price lunches; however, they may choose to submit an online application to see if they qualify for other benefits such as SAT testing or summer camp discounts.

Meal accounts

Paid and Reduced School Lunches can be prepaid by cash or check only and put into your child’s account in the cafeteria. Checks should be made payable to (name of school) Food Service (i.e., Lakewood High School Food Service). The money remains in the student’s account and rolls over from year to year. Your student’s account may be replenished at any time during the school year to avoid a negative balance.

My School Bucks online service

My School Bucks is an online payment portal especially designed to allow parents to make convenient, anytime payments to their children’s school meal accounts. Create a new account with My School Bucks using the student’s 10-digit local ID number.

You can find this number in Focus, which is located in the district’s home page drop-down menu.  Once in Focus, search under “Local Student ID.” Each student will need his or her own account.
