The Beverly Public School’s Food Service Department
is pleased to announce the implementation of the
Meal Magic Corporation’s point-of-sale system in to
our schools’ cafeterias. This is a prepaid register
system that will provide convenience and accountability
for our meal programs.
While cash will still be accepted it is not encouraged.
All students will have an account in to which parents
can deposit money at any time. This account will be
used for all of your student’s breakfast, lunch, milk or
snack purchases. All students are assigned a
four-digit code, which they enter at the register when
making a purchase. If a student forgets his/her code, the
cashier can look
up the code. Meal Magic offers you control for monitoring
your student’s spending and eating habits.
Please view the links to the right under "District News"
