SchoolCafé will charge a 5% service fee for each transaction (no minimum required). MySchoolBucks had previously charged $1.95 per transaction regardless of the amount. Parents may find it most beneficial to add $39 at a time to their child’s account which would keep the SchoolCafé service fee at $1.95, the same as they were previously paying.


To create a SchoolCafé account, you will need a valid email address and your child’s school ID. Then go to and follow the steps. 

  • Once you’ve created your account, all the school children in your family, no matter which P-H-M school they attend, can be added to your one account. 
  • Remember to bookmark in your browser—or you can get there quickly through all P-H-M websites. Just look under QUICK NAVIGATION in the lower left corner of the page and click on PAY MEALS ONLINE.
