Schoolcafé is available for making online deposits and to make the selections for the purchases that are allowed for your child’s meal account. You will also be able to use your credit card to make your deposits. There is a fee of $1.95 per deposit day. If you have more than one child in the District, the fee will be the same amount of $1.95. If you wish to transfer money from one child’s account to another, please contact Jennifer Wilinsky, Food Service Supervisor at ext. 1032 or email JLWilinsky@exeter.k12.pa.us.
There is no fee to create and maintain your child’s accounts. You may view the purchasing history as well as be notified for low balances through email.
This technology allows us to provide debit accounts for purchases and increases the speed of food service to students so they have more time to eat and converse. Parents enjoy the convenience of prepaying for their child’s purchases at whatever level they choose. The point of sale system also eliminates the overt identification of students who are eligible for free or reduced meal benefits.
The system allows you to pay in advance for meals and/or ala carte items. Students still have the option to pay cash on a daily basis. We urge you to take full advantage of this system by placing money into your child’s account on a weekly, monthly or annual basis. You choose the amount you want to deposit. Any money not spent by the end of school will be available for your child’s use the following school year. You may use the feature to receive a low balance notification. For proper notification of low balances, it is recommended to use $8.00 as the minimum balance so that you are notified in a timely manner.
We are proud of the quality Food Service Program we offer at Exeter Township School District and we do our best to keep our customers, the students, happy and well fed.
You said new features? Exeter Township School District provides online cafeteria menus on the Schoolcafé website. This gives you the ability to view what is on the menu at your child’s school cafeteria and view nutritional/allergen information. There also a bunch of cool interactive options as well for you to rate, favorite and share what’s on the menu. If you do not see anything relating to menus after signing in, don’t be alarmed – when we have everything updated, you will be able to use those additional features. We’ll be sure to let you know. Note: Features relating to menus and menu item information (nutrition and allergens) are controlled by Exeter Township School District.
Serving the entire family with the introduction of student accounts Schoolcafé now allows student accounts. Students 13 and older can create accounts to view and interact with the school cafeteria menu. We’ve also created a cool new feature that allows students to connect to their cafeteria account to see their account balance and view their purchase history. Our students always want to know what their account balance is and now they can access their account balance at any given time, knowing what was on the menu for the day, and that it would be really cool to have their ID accessible on their phone. Note: This feature is controlled by your school district and they will choose to turn this on or off.

As always, our ultimate goal is to serve amazing families. Your feedback is always welcome and we promise you’ll always be heard. Again, thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you and we hope that you absolutely love Schoolcafé. Have a great 2016-17 school year!
