MySchoolBucks enables parents and guardians to easily pay for school meals, track balances and review purchased items. MySchoolBucks is for all students, in pre-K through grade 12. To use the service, go directly to the MySchoolBucks site and create an account. MySchoolBucks can be accessed using a browser on a computer, phone or tablet, or by downloading the app for Apple or Android devices. Please note that the app has some restrictions and does not display all menu options.

Due to nationwide supply chain issues and labor shortages, menus are subject to change without notice due to product substitutions and inconsistent deliveries. Menu changes will vary by school. Please consider this information for students with food allergies. Contact your student’s school and/or the HCPS School Nutrition Services dietitian with questions.

Free and reduced-price meals for the 2022-23 school year

The pandemic-related universal free meals program funded by the USDA is not being extended to the 2022-23 school year. However, HCPS families are encouraged to apply for free and reduced-price meals for 2022-23, starting Aug. 1. (Costs for those who qualify for reduced-price meals is being waived for 2022-23.) Click “Free & Reduced-Price Meals” on this page to apply after Aug. 1. Paper applications will be available in all HCPS schools (excluding “Community Eligibility Provision” schools) and the School Nutrition Services office at 3751-A Nine Mile Road.

Families with students at some HCPS schools don’t need to apply.
