School Cafe Registration Instructions

         We are pleased to inform you that the Bradford Area School District participates in the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) in all of the Bradford Area School District schools. What does this mean for your child/children attending these schools? All students enrolled are eligible for a FREE breakfast AND lunch at school at NO CHARGE to your household each day of the 2018-2019 school year. No further action is required of you. Your child/children will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application.

            Bradford Area School District schools follow the National School Lunch Program Offer vs Serve meal pattern and all meals must meet federal and state guidelines. This means that students must take 3 items out of the 4 items offered at breakfast and 1 of those items must be a ½ cup fruit and at lunch, students must take 3 items out of the 5 items offered and 1 of those items must be a ½ cup fruit or vegetable.

           This program does NOT allow students to take just a milk. Students who choose to pack a lunch may not take a milk free. However for students wanting to pack a few of their favorite options, students may choose our “Pack and Carry” option. We will provide a fruit choice (apple, banana, orange, pear, etc.), a veggie choice (baby carrots, tossed salad, for example), and a choice of milk, the students may take these items as they go through the serving lines. These items, along with their packed items, will help complete their lunch. There is absolutely no charge!

           Students who wish to purchase an extra entrée or one of our snack options must pay for them. In other words, this program does not apply to ala carte items.

           As of June 30, 2018, the online payment system through PayForIt.Net for your child’s lunch accounts will no longer be active. The Bradford Area School District will be switching over to SchoolCafé for their online payments. SchoolCafé will be active starting July 1, 2018. All balances will be transferred from PayForIt.Net to SchoolCafé.

           SchoolCafé provides a secure online system for parents/guardians to make payments to your child’s lunch accounts, you can set low balance alerts for each account, you can set automatic payments, and you can review your child’s buying history.

           You will be able to set up an account for you child by going to www.schoolcafe.com and registering. You will need to have your child’s student id number and a payment source.

           If you have questions, please contact Dana Mollander, Director of Food Services for The Nutrition Group and the Bradford Area School District at (814)362-3841 ext. 2522 or at dmollander@bradfordareaschools.org.
