Cafeteria

As part of our school meals program, families send pre-payments to their school campus office or pay online through www.myschoolbucks.com. Please note that our cafeteria team does not handle cash payments. 
 
Through these two pre-pay options,  students simply enter their student ID number each time they buy breakfast or lunch. Money is then debited from the child’s account. Parents or guardians can check their student's balance through Schoolbucks.com and view their child's purchases.  Click here to set up an account.

Divine Mercy Catholic Academy does not currently participate as a provider of SFSP. Please refer to the www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks to find a SFSP location near you.
