SchoolCafé connects families to school nutrition.

Parents, manage your child's cafeteria account. Make payments, view purchase history, receive low balance alerts, and view school menus containing nutritional and allergen information for items. For convenience, setup automatic payments to replenish their cafeteria funds. Know what is on the menu at your child's school cafeteria and provide feedback by rating and sharing items. Favorite your child's favorite items and SchoolCafé will send you a notification to let you know when it's on the menu.

Students, use SchoolCafé to check out what's available on the cafeteria menu each day. View nutritional and allergen information to help you make healthy decisions. Use "Make a Tray" to build your meal for the items available that day and see the combined nutrient information. Give your feedback to the school cafeteria by rating items. Favorite specific items on the menu so that you can know when they'll be available in the cafeteria. Connect to your cafeteria account to always know your account balance and have access to your digital ID card.

SchoolCafé, formerly ParentOnline, is powered by PrimeroEdge, the leading school nutrition management software for K-12 school districts in the United States.

SchoolCafé is available for participating schools only.

Love School Cafe

Ding! Hot Pockets

I rarely review apps and here I am spending valuable time to give kudos to School Cafe of all things. But this is my favorite app on my phone and that includes FB, IG, Twitter, banking, news, Google Maps, Google Music, Waze, Skype, blah blah blah. I get an email that I need to add money and in under ten seconds I've topped off two student accounts. Oddly but decidedly satisfying. Been using it for years and the redesign has made it even easier. It would be great to see such simplicity with all the technology I use. The fee is definitely worth it.

Best regards,

Well done


Well done, I wrote a review some months back mentioning a few key things that I thought would really help the app. They responded very kindly directly in months later actually fix the problems or at least my opinions. Thank you and will make it much more enjoyable this year and for that matter the years to come.

Hi Covact!

Thanks for your feedback! We're always looking to reduce the number of taps required to do something in SchoolCafé and are glad that we've improved this for many of our users as well, but we acknowledge it's still not quite perfect. The Make Payments button is still at the top of the Dashboard, but we will be reducing the amount of taps required to view menus, and make it much easier to login (and *stay* logged in) through Touch and Face ID in the next release, which is coming soon. So stay tuned! We'll keep working until we earn a 5/5 from you!

Best regards,

Too Expensive

Best game girl player

This sight is convenient. However I don’t feel like there should be a minimum of $20. Situations like end of semester it would be nice to put $10 on an account and be done.
Also, the transaction fee every time is a rip off. Maybe charge $10 per year to use this service instead of a transaction fee every time. Next school year I am going back to the old check writing because it’s cheaper that way.

Developer Response

Hi Best game girl player,

Convenience fees simply have to be passed on because it costs vendors to process online payments (this fee is charged in every transaction you make at any point online or in-person, but is typically hidden from you since it is often included with the price of an item or service)... but, points well taken! In an upcoming release, you'll finally be able to transfer monies between accounts, which will benefit you without requiring you to make payments.

Hopefully we still see you around and make the experience better for you, earning a better review next year!

Best Regards,
-Team SchoolCafé
