Pay for school food ONLINE
(for a small fee)

 Log into MyPayments Plus

By: Doug Joersz, Child Nutrition Coordinator

Parents now have access to an online payment system implemented by Bismarck Public Schools' Child Nutrition Program. You can make payments to your child's meal account online using a VISA or MasterCard credit card (debit cards are not allowed at this point in time), OR you can continue to pay by sending money or checks to your child's school.

The online payment system is called MyPaymentsPlus. You can use it to:
  • View your child's meal account balance online (free service).
  • See what your child is purchasing in the cafeteria (free service).
  • Receive e-mail reminders when your child's lunch account balance is low (free service).
  • Make payments to your child's meal account (a 4.29% fee is charged each time you make a payment. Ex: if you deposit $100, you will be charged $104.29 for the online convenience option. The fee goes to MyPaymentPlus, not Bismarck Public Schools).
Signing up is free and easy. You will need your child's district ID number to register. Download these instructions on how to register for any or all of these free or fee services!
