BOX TOPS GO HIGH TECH!
Redeeming Box Tops is now available using a free app that scans your receipt (within 14 days of purchase) and automatically applies the 10 cents per participating item to the school you choose. Look for the new Box Tops scan logo on the package. More information on this new app for box tops can be found at btfe.com.
If you see the familiar, traditional Box Tops logo as the packaging is being phased out of production, you may continue to clip and send them to school before the expiration date printed on the box top. During the transition, you can actually double dip by clipping and scanning the receipt so the school will get 20 cents per item during that time!
Friends and family, near and far, can also participate using the app and selecting their preferred Bedford Public School building to support. School selection can be changed in the app settings if you need to share the wealth between an elementary school for the first semester and the junior high for the second semester, for example.
This is a great way to provide your favorite school with additional resources without any additional expense to you! We appreciate your time in supporting our schools in this manner! Thank you!

FOOD SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
Free & Reduced Meal Applications for 2019-20 School Year
Applications for free/reduced meals for 2019-2020 are available online, on the Food Service webpage, in all the school offices, or can be printed here.
This form must be filled our annually as benefits will expire on October 11, 2019 if a new application is not submitted. Families can also apply for Free and Reduced School Meals at any time during the school year.
Participation is confidential and anonymous to use. All student transactions at the cafeteria cash register appear identical regardless of whether students are paying full price, receiving reduced prices, or free meals, to protect the confidentiality of program participation. It's a win-win situation: the students benefit from the healthy food at breakfast and lunch with families keeping more of their hard earned money, and schools can benefit from federal funding and programs that become available based on family participation in the school meal program.
Food Service Donations Accepted
In the past, Bedford Public Schools has been fortunate to have received donations to help pay off students' negative food service balances. Accounts have been set up at each school to receive donations from anyone else interested in ensuring that all of our students can enjoy a healthy meal every day at school. Stop by the school office if you wish to make a similar donation.
