Idaho Novus partners with the Healthy Scholars Project to provide hot, nutritious school lunches. Our school lunch program is operated on the MySchoolBucks platform, which integrates with MySchoolApps and MealOrders.com. You must create an account with MySchoolBucks to pay for school lunches. Please create a MySchoolBucks account even if your child qualifies for free lunch, as this login is also required for the meal ordering application.
Step 1: Create a MySchoolBucks (MSB) account.
Step 2: Add funds to your child’s lunch account.
Step 3: Order your child’s meals on MealOrders.com; you will be able to use your MSB login credentials from Step 1. If you would like your student(s) to receive a school lunch you must place an order for the lunch regardless of status (Free, Reduced, or Paid).
All lunches must be pre-ordered.
Free and Reduced Lunch: Parents must complete the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Application online to see if they qualify for free or reduced benefits. Please keep in mind that it may take up to 10 days to process applications before benefits can start. Applications are submitted via www.MySchoolApps.com.
Pre-Ordering Deadline: All lunches must be ordered in advance. This requires orders for the following week to be submitted no later than Thursday. In the case of an emergency, a sandwich lunch may be ordered no later than 9:00 am the same day.
Cancellations: Cancellations can be made up to 9:00 am the same day due to illness.
Menus: Monthly menus will be posted on or before the 15th of every month for the following month. There will be two hot lunch choices as well as a sandwich offered each day.
Please review these helpful videos that explain step by step how to set up your account and place orders.
