    We ask that all payments to the school cafeteria be made online or by mailing a check to the SCASD Food Service Department Office.  

    Cash and checks sent with students to the Elementary and Middle Schools will be sent back home.

    Cash and checks presented at the High School will only be accepted for the purpose of depositing the full amount into a student's cafeteria account.  -Change will not be given. 

    When mailing a check, make the check payable to SCASD FSD and include the following information in the correspondence:

    • The name of student(s) to whom the payment is to be credited.
    • The school that each student attends. 
    • If the check is for more than one student, the amount that is to be credited to each child's account.
    • If not included on the check, your name and phone number.

    Mail account payments to:

    SCASD Food Service Department
    653 Westerly Parkway
    State College, PA  16801

    Payments will be credited to students accounts within 1 work day of receipt.  Students will never be denied a meal for lack of funds, but a la carte (extra) food purchases require that an account balance is available.  Please monitor your child's account balance at MySchoolBucks and send payments in a timely manner if you want your student to be able to purchase extra food items. (There is no fee to monitor account balances or to receive low balance alerts from MySchoolBucks.)

    The State College Area School District will assess a $35.00 fee for all checks returned by the bank.
