Free and reduced meal benefits

PINELLAS COUNTY — No need for a paper application. Apply for meal benefits online from the privacy of your home, or anywhere with an internet connection.


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.: Largo 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 specially 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/her own account.
