School lunch program
The Pinellas County School District participates in the National School Lunch/ Breakfast Program.

Dinner is also available in select schools for students enrolled in afterschool programs. Nutritious meals are served every school day. All meals served must meet standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Some students may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. To apply, families can submit an application each year listing every child in the family. Paper applications are available throughout the school year from your school or use the online application at

Breakfast and lunch can be prepaid by putting money into the child’s account in the cafeteria. Checks are accepted and should be made out to the school’s food service. The money remains in the student account and may be used for any meal during the year. A child’s account can be replenished at any time.

My School Bucks, an online payment portal especially designed to allow parents to make quick and easy online payments to children’s school meal accounts, will replace School Payment Solutions. Parents can create a new account with My School Bucks using a child’s 10-digit local ID number.

Before and aftercare
Before and aftercare programs are available at many Pinellas County Schools elementary and middle schools. Programs are also offered at other locations such as municipal recreation centers and area YMCAs. Visit for a complete list of schools with locations and contact information.
