The North Hills School District Food Service Department is comprised of a team of food and nutrition professionals committed to our students' health and academic achievement. Our primary focus is to support success in the classroom, help students to develop lifelong healthy habits and meet their nutritional needs throughout the instructional day.

It is our mission to provide high quality, appealing and nutritious meals and exceptional service to our students with an emphasis on local procurement and partnering with community businesses whenever possible.

Breakfast and lunch is available at all six North Hills School District schools. The meals provide students with nutritious and appealing breakfast and lunch options that meet the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.

Meal Prices
  • Breakfast: FREE for all students in 2023-24
  • Lunch: $2.50

Students may purchase additional items (i.e. drinks, snacks) with cash or using their student cafeteria account.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available for families who qualify. Students eligible for free or reduced meals will receive both breakfast and lunch at no cost. Apply online via SchoolCafe or using the form linked below.


North Hills School District uses SchoolCafe, a computerized point of sale and account management system for Food Service purchases. Through SchoolCafe, families can manage student accounts and make payments, and view menus and nutrition information. For the 2023-24 school year, SchoolCafe replaces MySchoolBucks and any remaining balances in MySchoolBucks have been transferred to SchoolCafe.

Each student is provided with an account and unique PIN. Students simply enter their PIN on a keypad as they pass through the cafeteria line. This PIN is also part of the student's computer network and Google password.

Funds may be added to a student's account two ways:

  1. Cash and check sent to the school cafeteria manager. Funds will be entered into the student's cafeteria account the same day as received. Checks should be made payable to NHSD Food Service Department. Please include the student's name and PIN on the check.
  2. Online via SchoolCafe. SchoolCafe may be accessed from a web browser or mobile app.

Meal Charge Procedures

  • À la carte purchases are not permitted with a negative account balance.
  • Phone calls and text messages are initiated to parents when a student’s account balance reaches -$2.
  • Parents may choose to receive email reminders for account replenishment via SchoolCafe.
  • NHSD operates in compliance with PA Act 55, and all students will be served breakfast and lunch.
  • Communications regarding lunch account balances are directed to parents, not students.
