2022 - 2023 School Year Meal Information

In an effort to keep our students safe, expedite them through the lunch lines, and minimize contact with cash handling, we are encouraging parents to add funds to student lunch accounts via School Café (www.schoolcafe.com) for students to use to purchase a la carte snacks.

School Meals

The School District of Springfield Township will be returning to Paid school meals for all students; please visit www.schoolcafe.com to fill out a Free or Reduced Price Meal Application for your household or contact Susan Holman at susan_holman@sdst.org or call 215-233-6000 ext. 1031 to obtain a paper application.  We will begin accepting Applications in August for the current school year.

Eligibility determinations, from Free or Reduced Price Meal applications, are used for tracking purposes by the school and state agencies for benefits that may be provided by the state.  Any approved eligibility for the current school year will also carry over for the first 30 operating days of the upcoming school year.
