Cafeteria Accounts and Online Payment

  • How can I add money to my student’s cafeteria account?

    Funds may be added to cafeteria accounts in the following ways:

    1. Online at SchoolCafe - see instructions below.

    2. Mail or deliver a check made payable to BASD Dining Services with the student's first name, last name and ID number to:

             BASD Dining Services
             1170 Fernwood Street
             Bethlehem, PA 18018

    1. Place cash or check made payable to BASD Dining Services in an envelope clearly labeled with the student’s first name, last name and ID number. The labeled envelope may then be handed to a Dining Services team member at breakfast time in the cafeteria. Elementary students may hand the envelopes to their teachers. Cash or checks not in labeled envelopes will not be accepted.

    Download the SchoolCafe app on the App Store or get it on Google Play.
