Online Meal Payments

San Angelo ISD is committed to offering meals to students that are convenient, economical, and healthy. We offer convenient on-line resources that are available 24/7 for parents to monitor their child’s cafeteria account. We look forward to partnering with you to help your child have a great day at school. 


SchoolCafe - Go Beyond the School Cafeteria

SchoolCafé is a safe, secure, and easy way to manage your child's cafeteria account. Apply for free or reduced meals, make payments, view purchase history, receive low balance alerts,and set restrictions on your student's account. For convenience, parents can also setup automatic payments to replenish your child's cafeteria funds.

Registering for a FREE account with SchoolCafé is easy. Go to to sign up. All you need is your student(s) ID.  If you do not know your students ID number, please contact their campus.

For even easier access, download the app from Google Play or the Apple App store.

When student SchoolCafé accounts do not have enough funds to cover costs of meals, we allow students to continue to charge up to $12.00 on the account, limited to lunch meals only (not a la carte items). After the $12 advance/charge limit is met, then students will no longer be able to charge to their SchoolCafé account but will be offered an emergency meal consisting of a ham and cheese sandwich and a juice or milk until the owed balance is paid on the account. 

Families are reminded that:

  • Payments can be made in the School Cafe app, online at or by sending a check or cash with your student.
  • Low balance alerts and automatic payments can be set up in your account for ease of management.
  • We are committed to helping our students continue to have access to nutritious meals. Please remember, Free and Reduced Meal Applications can be completed at any time during the school year. Learn more here.
  • SAISD offers breakfasts to all students at no cost.
