Students may qualify for free or reduced-price meals. One family application must be submitted each year listing every child in the household. Paper applications are available throughout the school year from your school, or you may use the convenient online application: MySchoolApps is a quick and easy way for parents and guardians to submit application for benefits. This service is provided to you free of charge by your School District. Apply for School Lunch
Paid and Reduced School Lunches can be prepaid by cash or check only, and put into your child's account in the cafeteria. Checks should be made payable to Brooker Creek Elementary Food Service. The money remains in the student's account, and rolls over from year to year.Your student's account may be replenished at any time during the school year to avoid a negative balance.
My School Bucks - Online Service
My School Bucks is an online payment portal specially designed to allow parents to make convenient, anytime payments to their children's school meal accounts. Create a new account with My School Bucks using the student's 10 digit local ID number. You can find this number in Focus, which is located in the District's Home Page drop down menu; once in Focus, search under "Local Student ID". Each student will need his/her own account.

Pinellas County School Food Service Department has set forth specific guidelines for students borrowing lunch money that BCE adheres to. We understand that lunch money and lunch boxes are lost or forgotten, and accounts occasionally run out of funds. Food Service would not deny your child a lunch due to lack of money, but this should be on an emergency basis only.
When an account is running low, the cashier will verbally notify the child and stamp his/her hand with a red lunch money stamp if they desire. This will also happen if a child is borrowing. Once the student has borrowed, written notices will be placed in his/her teacher's mailbox. If an account reaches 3 borrowed lunches or a negative balance of $5.25, the child will not be permitted to choose a regular lunch, but will be provided with a cold sandwich and white milk. This will take place until the arrears are paid.
