Bellingham Public Schools provides an easy way to add money to a food account by making payments through the online system, MyPaymentsPlus. If a food account balance is low, it will only take a few minutes to add money using a credit/debit card or a checking account at any time of the day from anywhere. Payments will post within one-hour to the student’s food account. Families will be charged a small fee for making an online payment. Or, families can continue to pay for school meals with cash or check at their school.
To begin the registration process, go to the Food Services Online Payment webpage. Follow the instructions to register or go straight to MyPaymentsPlus.
For questions regarding meal payments, call (360) 676-6540 or email BPS.MealPayments@BellinghamSchools.org.

Donations can be made to an individual student’s meal account when you supply the student’s name to your school Food Services cashier.
Harvest of the Month introduces farm fresh produce or locally preserved foods to students in Bellingham cafeterias through the school lunch program. Food Services will continue to make new connections with local farmers and food producers to expand the selection of local foods. Each month educational materials are provided for students, teachers, and parents. Harvest of the Month provides a great opportunity to try new foods, talk about food choices and think about where our food comes from.
For information about Harvest of the Month visit the Whatcom Farm-to-School website.
