*****The first lunch for every student, Pre-K through Grade 12 is FREE through June 2022. BPS offers MyPayments Plus, online meal payment option for parents, for ala carte items or a second lunch, if desired.
The BROCKTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS also offers Breakfast in the Classroom, at NO CHARGE, to every elementary student and at our k-8 schools in the district.
The Brockton Public Schools offers MyPayments Plus, a state-of-the-art online service that provides parents with the convenience and information they need to manage their student’s ala carte and second meal account anywhere, at any time of day or night. This system speeds up serving lines in the cafeteria, eliminates the need to send money to school for extras or a second lunch (on the same day).
At no cost, MyPayments Plus allows families to:
• Create a free, secured account to manage all of your student’s accounts; use the same account for more than one child.
• Check your student’s current account balance and create settings to receive email notifications when the account reaches a low balance.
• Monitor the additional items your student has been purchasing in the cafeteria.
• Make a prepayment into your student’s meal account using a check, credit card, or debit card at www.mypaymentsplus.com or by calling (866) 789-6907. Funds deposited through MyPayments Plus are usually available for student use within a matter of minutes.
• Create settings to automatically replenish your student’s account when it reaches a low balance.
If you prefer to make payments or check balances via phone, call toll free (866) 789-6907.
To create a new account, visit www.mypaymentsplus.com or click on the MyPayments Plus icon below. Follow the onscreen directions and register your student using their Student ID number. Your student’s ID number can be obtained by contacting support at 1-877-237-0946.
We are thrilled to be back serving your child for the 2021-2022 school year! After adapting our service last year for meals we’re excited to be back serving all students and grade levels in the cafeteria. To kick off the new year, we wanted to share a few things you and your child can look forward to when it comes to mealtime and get an inside look at the new recipes, concepts, and programs we’ll be introducing this fall.
Lunchand breakfast is FREE for ALL Students in the 2021-2022 School Year!
Thanks to flexibilities provided by the USDA’s National School Lunch Program, students will have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast and lunch at no cost throughout the academic year. It is important to note that no application is required because this year free meals are available to all students. This is a unique opportunity for everyone to eat together and will hopefully make it easier for students and families to confidently check breakfastand lunch off their list.
Food Kids Love to Eat
Chartwells’ team of chefs and dietitians are working to bring even more variety to our menus featuring new recipes with kid approved foods.
Programs that Encourage Fun and Discovery
Chartwells continues to inspire healthy eating habits and spark a culinary curiosity to last a lifetime through fun and engaging programs.
Inviting Environments & Happy Cafeterias
Students need a place to eat where they can connect with others, recharge, and enjoy a sense of happiness, especially following a year where kids weren’t able to always sit and enjoy a meal with their classmates.
Menus, Nutrition Facts, at Your Fingertips
Through Nutrislice, an innovative app, students, parents and faculty have access to school menus, including nutrition information, allergens and photos. Nutrislice can be downloaded for free from the App store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) and is available on desktop and mobile devices. Menus are also available at brocktonpublicschools.nutrislice.com
Through sharing our passion for great tasting food, instilling a desire for food discovery, and most importantly, providing nourishing meals, we're excited to continue serving up happy and healthy to your children in the year ahead.
