Falmouth School Nutrition Program

Healthy Food for a Healthy Future

Welcome to the Falmouth Schools Nutrition Program website.  The mission of the Falmouth Schools Nutrition Program is to provide healthy, nutritious food options for students in a child-centered, professional manner. We use scratch cooking methods incorporating local foods to the greatest extent possible.

All registered students of Falmouth Public Schools are eligible for a 

free breakfast and lunch everyday, permanently.

**Payment Portal Update**

The Falmouth School Nutrition Program will be teaming up with MySchoolBucks to replace the current payment portal, LINQ Connect, for the 2024-2025 school year. You will need to create a new account with MySchoolBucks if you wish to continue adding funds to your student's school food account online.  Any funds in your child's account will still be available to them in the cafeterias at the beginning of the new school year.  

You will not be able to add any money to your current LINQ Connect account after June 14, 2024

Please do not setup any MySchoolBucks accounts until August 6, 2024.  Pre-K, Kindergarten and Elementary School students do not need this service.  

This is only for Middle and High School Students for purchasing A la Carte items aside from their eligible free meal.

You can access MySchoolBucks by clicking on the logo below.

MySchoolBucks will allow you to set up one-time or recurring payments for your student’s account. There is a service fee of $3.25 for credit & debit card transactions and $2.75 for all ACH transactions. You can also view previous transactions, transfer funds between students, set low balance notifications, and more. It’s an easy way to manage food payments without the hassle of sending cash. Please be aware that the Falmouth Nutrition Department will not have access to any MySchoolBucks accounts. Any technical or customer service help needed will have to be through MySchoolBucks.

In advance we thank you for your cooperation and understanding while making the change.  Please bear with us.
