Meal Payment System

Mansfield ISD Student Nutrition uses SchoolCafé as our provider for online meal payments and free/reduced lunch. (The district transitioned from MySchoolBucks in July 2020.)

SchoolCafé is a safe and secure way for parents to monitor student(s) account balance, view purchases and payments and set up low balance email alerts. Register for a SchoolCafé account.
