How to Pay for Meals

Nutrition Services uses PayPAMS for online payments for school meals. Go to https://paypams.com for more information. As of November 1, 2022 PayPams will charge a $2.40 fee per family, rather than per student for online payments.  PayPAMS can also be used to set up low balance reminders and automatic deposits.

Families may also pay for meals by check or cash at your child’s school. Checks should be made payable to Bellevue School District.

Meal Charge Policy

If a student does not have sufficient funds to pay for a school meal, it is the policy of the Bellevue School District to allow the student to charge their meal.  Snack bar or a la carte items may not be charged.  Parents/guardians are responsible for negative balances on a student’s account.   Parents may set limits.  Contact Nutrition Services for more information.

Previous USDA Pandemic Waivers

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has allowed meals to be provided to students at no cost to families.  The waivers that allowed for this practice expired on June 30, 2022. As a result, the district will start charging fees again for meals starting in the 2022-23 school year.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
