Healthy Changes in Our School Cafeterias!
This fall, Bethel Park School Cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals.  Click here to learn more.


Free/Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Update

The Bethel Park School District participates in the National School Lunch Program and Free/Reduced Meals are available to those who qualify.  Please be advised that even if your student(s) qualified for Free/Reduced meals this school year, you MUST ALSO reapply before EVERY school year.  If you have questions, please call Dana Walker at 412-854-8426.  

If your family qualifies for Free/Reduced Meals, you could also qualify for reduced-cost broadband internet access from Comcast.  Please click here to learn more.


All Bethel Park school cafeterias use the QSP point of sale system.  All cafeterias are now equipped with a touch screen, and once a student enters his/her student ID number into the system, his/her picture appears to ensure no one but your child is accessing his/her account.  Parents have the opportunity to pre-pay for their child's meals either by bringing cash or a check payable to "Bethel Park School District" to school, or you can pre-pay using a credit card via the PayForIt.net on-line service.  Parents who opt to pay with a credit card will be charged 5.75% per transaction.  No service fee will be charged to parents who pre-pay with cash or check.  

Parents can also make payments to PayForIt.Net and into QSP for cafeteria meals with automatic withdrawals from their checking account.  Parents must complete the Lunch Payment by Check Form below.  The cost for this transaction is only $1.25 vs. the 5.75% per credit card transaction.  Parents who pay by check can save per transaction if they make a transaction above $25.  This does not apply to parents who send in a check to school with their child.  This is only for payments to PayForIt.Net via automatic withdrawals from a checking account.

Even if you do not use PayForIt to pre-pay for meals with a credit card, you can still set up a free account for your child and have on-line access to view your account balance, see what your child has purchased and set up email reminders.  To access Pay For It, please click on the logo below.  We encourage you to set up an account to monitor your child's cafeteria activity.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the BPSD Food Service Department at 412-854-8754.

ATTENTION, PARENTS-- The Food Service has implemented a new system to notify parents when their children's cafeteria balances are negative.  The Alert Now calling system will be used to notify parents that a negative cafeteria balance has occurred and to forward payment to the Food Service Department at Neil Armstrong Middle School (during summer months) and to the schools (during the school year).  Questions can be answered by contacting Food Service Director Joe Consolmagno at 412-854-8754 or [email protected]


The Bethel Park School District has cafeterias in all eight of our schools.  The school district contracts with Metz Culinary Management to provide food services for all of our schools.
