Egg Harbor City Public School’s Food Service Department is excited to provide you with a convenient and secure online payment service called mySchoolBucks®. This website allows you to deposit money directly into your school meal account and view balance/purchase information for the past ninety days. By having money in your account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find that the lunch lines move along much faster.

From this website you can create your account and deposit money. All you need is your student(s) names, school name, and student ID number.
Things to know:
If you have more than one child in the district you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account.
Payments may be made with a Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit or debit card. You may also make a payment using an e-check.
In order to use the online prepayment service, a convenience fee for each transaction will be assessed to cover the bank fees. The convenience fee as of December 11, 2017 is $2.49 per deposit transaction. If you are placing money into multiple meal accounts you will only be assessed the $2.49 fee once per deposit transaction. Egg Harbor City Public School District will not profit from the use of this site. Please Note: You may fund up to $120 per child, but a family may pay for all of their children on a single transaction.
We are very excited to offer this new service and are confident that mySchoolBucks will benefit you, your child and our District. If you choose not to take advantage of the online payment service you may continue to make advance payments via check, which should be made payable to Egg Harbor City Board of Ed. Please remember to write your child’s full name on the check. You can also utilize the myschoolbucks website to monitor student lunch balances and lunch purchases without using the online payment option.
If you have any questions about these new services, please feel free to contact my office at 609-965-1034 ext. 338
